Come Fly With Us, Langley by Liz Moore Military Team, Langley AFB

By Liz Moore Military Team

One of the greatest things about living on the Virginia Peninsula and being stationed at Langley Air Force Base, is how easy travel is…thanks to the Newport News Williamsburg International Airport.  PHF (Patrick Henry Field) is a small, convenient airport, with a wide variety of convenient flights in and out of all the region’s major hubs. Delta and US Airways serve the airport, and it’s less than 17 miles from the main gate at Langley.

Liz Moore Military Team, Langley AFB

Interestingly, the airport traces its roots back to WWII, when it was part of the US Army’s Camp Patrick Henry, a sprawling 1700 acre complex that was a major staging area for American troops shipping off to war in Europe.  The Camp was deactivated shortly after the war ended, and commercial airline service began here in 1949 with Piedmont Airlines.

Williamsburg, VA, Best Place to Retire and a Great Place for Military Families to Visit by Mike Loveland, Liz Moore Military Team, Langley AFB

By Mike Loveland, Liz Moore Military Team

Military retirees and families from Hampton Roads don’t have to look far for a highly rated retirement town.

Liz Moore Military Team, Langley AFB

Liz Moore Military Team, Langley AFB

The magazine “Where to Retire” has selected Williamsburg, Virginia as a top retirement town.  According to Editor Mary Lu Abbott, “Williamsburg residents get the best of two centuries.  Retirees can enjoy the perks of modern-day America, complete with fine dining, art museums and theme parks, and in the same day have an 18th-century adventure in Colonial Williamsburg.  The College of William and Mary adds to the sophistication and culture and offers extensive leisure-learning opportunities.”

With over 700,000 Americans relocating to new towns to retire each year, Williamsburg should get its fair share.  However, Williamsburg has many things to do for non-retirees as well; and with military discounts at places like Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg, members from Ft. Eustis and Langley AFB should definitely make that short drive with their families and enjoy everything that Williamsburg has to offer.

How Did Newport News Get Its Name? by Liz Moore Military Team, Langley AFB

By Liz Moore Military Team

Liz Moore Military Team, Langley AFB

Newport News is just minutes from Langley AFB…do you know how it got its name?

Steeped in history, ours is a community of diverse trades including shipbuilding, technological research and international commerce. We are proud of our City and its rich heritage which dates back to the founding of America. Newport News was named for Christopher Newport, captain of the Susan Constant, the lead ship of the three ship fleet that carried the Jamestown settlers to the new world in 1607. Captain Newport made several more trips between the new world and England. After the Starving Time of 1610, the original colonists abandoned Jamestown and encountered Captain Newport in the James River and learned that reinforcements of men and supplies had arrived, thus prompting their return to Jamestown. The place where that occurred became known for Newport’s good news, ‘Newport’s News,’ and eventually just Newport News. Since the turn of the 19th century, Newport News has been known as the provider of the nation’s finest, technologically advanced military ships. In more recent years, Newport News has also become a center for international commerce, research and technology. Our economy is strengthened by a strong military presence in Hampton Roads and, in Newport News, we are proud to be home of the U.S. Army Transportation Center at Fort Eustis. The City’s historic sites, museums and cultural facilities compliment the quality of life for Newport News residents and businesses. The City boasts 18 public parks, as well as public boat ramps and recreation facilities.
