Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story</is comprised of the former Naval Amphibious Base Little Creek and the Army Post of Fort Story. Fort Story witnessed the humble beginnings of our country at the 1607 first landing site. Little Creek began as a dynamic training ground for World War II amphibious forces. Together they comprise the crown jewel of America’s military bases. Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek–Fort Story is the country’s premier installation for housing and training the nation’s Expeditionary Forces.

The base comprises four locations in three states, including almost 12,000 acres of real estate. Its Little Creek location in Virginia Beach, Virginia totals 2,120 acres acres of land. Outlying facilities include 350 acres located just north of Training Support Center Hampton Roads in Virginia Beach, and 21 acres known as Radio Island at Morehead City, North Carolina.  Radio Island is used for U.S. Coast Guard ships and personnel as well as serves as an amphibious embarkation/debarkation area for U.S. Marine Corps units at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
The mission of the Naval Amphibious Base is to provide required support services to over 15,000 personnel of the 27 homeported ships and 78 resident and/or supported activities. The base’s combination of operational, support, and training facilities are geared predominantly to amphibious operations, making the base unique among bases of the United States and Allied Navies. The Naval Amphibious Base Little Creek is the largest base of its kind in the world.
Fort Story is located in the independent city of Virginia Beach, Virginia at Cape Henry at the entrance of the Chesapeake Bay. The area offers a unique combination of features including dunes, beaches, sand, surf, deep-water anchorage, variable tide conditions, maritime forest and open land. The base is the prime location and training environment for both Army amphibious operations and Joint Logistics-Over-the-Shore (LOTS) training events. There are over 17,000 Active Duty, Reserve, Guard, military families, DoD personnel, civilians, and retirees assigned to Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story.
