Do you serve in the company of heroes? April 23, 2010 — One of my favorite scenes from "A Band of Brothers" is the story told at the end of the film when a World War II veteran was asked by his grandson if he was a hero in the war. His reply was no, but that he served in the company of heroes. That answer resonates with me and makes me think how lucky I am, and we all are, to serve in the company of MORE

Joint basing provides support equal to service April 5, 2010 — In January, Fort Eustis took the first formal steps toward joint basing when we activated the 733d Mission Support Group and Joint Base Langley-Eustis officially began Initial Operational Capability.

Standards: Are they just things we comply with at work? March 26, 2010 — Every job has standards or rules that govern what we do in that line of work and when we're going to do it. For those of us who've worn a uniform in our nation's armed forces, past or present, the standards are usually defined initially at Basic Military Training. As new recruits, we live and breathe these standards day and night; failure to do so MORE

The flightline can be a dangerous place as a recent visitor to JBLE learned the hard way. As he ventured closer to the most lethal fighter jet on the planet, this fellow flier was faced with his own mortality. This cautionary tale serves as a frightening reminder to always practice situational awareness.
Tonight, Fort Eustis hosted its annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony, featuring carols performed by the TRADOC Band, local Girl Scouts, and the Woodside High School Select Women’s Ensemble. Santa and Mrs. Claus even paid the post a visit, wishing Happy Holidays to all!
