About Fort Eustis, Virginia:
Mulberry Island, named by English colonists in 1610, had been home to Native Americans, colonists, indentured servants, and enslaved Africans, and became the home for training troops in heavy artillery on March 19, 1918. It was renamed Camp Eustis after MG Abraham Eustis, from Petersburg, Virginia. In 1923 it was officially designated Fort Eustis, and became a permanent military installation. Over the years, Fort Eustis contained the Army’s only active armored car troop, infantry tanks, detachments of Signal, Chemical Warfare, and Quartermaster troops. During the Great Depression, the base was used as a prison farm and camp for homeless laborers under the Federal Relief Agency and Bureau of Prisons.
WWII saw Fort Eustis again evolve as it became a Coast Artillery Replacement Center, and an international training center for troops from the British Army’s Caribbean Regiment. During the Cold War, Fort Eustis was the home to the Transportation Corps and School. In December 1954, Felker Heliport became the DoD’s first helicopter airfield. In 2010, the Army Transportation School headquarters was moved to Fort Lee (Fort Gregg-Adams), and the Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) headquarters replaced it. As a result of the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure Act (BRAC), Fort Eustis and Langley Air Force Base were consolidated under the Air Force and the 633rd Air Base Wing as Joint Base Langley-Eustis. Today, Fort Eustis continues to be an important part of our Country’s national defense and surrounding community.
