The Pumpkin Ash Battlefield
JOINT BASE LANGLEY-EUSTIS, Va. —
Within the confines of Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia, lay a rare, old growth forest. This sacred ecological island has been nurtured by American history and cultural heritage. Though this forest has been long spared from metal axe and saws seeking timber, blood was shed and the ground hallowed in the immediate vicinity of the cleared woodland that now rest below the reservoir itself.
