Langley Thrift Shop, giving back to JBLE

New beginnings aren’t always easy or fun, and life in the military can be full of those. A Permanent Change of Station can be quite hectic with all the moving, packing, travelling and unexpected things along the way. At Langley Air Force Base, the Langley Thrift Shop, which is run by the Langley Officers' Spouses' Club, helps the Joint Base Langley-Eustis community by providing low cost items that may have been lost, delivered later than expected or forgotten during a PCS.

If a pilot in control of a U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor were to find such a pothole as it screamed down the runway, the outcome could be catastrophic. To prevent such an incident, the 633rd Civil Engineer Squadron is tasked with the up keep of the oldest active U.S. Air Force airfield, which supports 5th generation weapons systems.
