Welcome to Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story!

“The Pearl by the Bay and the Emerald on The Ocean”—is a great tagline for a military base. It’s also a big clue about how closely connected Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story is to the water.

Base Location & Information

Official Site: Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek Fort Story





Nearby military installations:


Fort Story is significant to America’s past, dating to the earliest settlers in 1607. Fort Story and Little Creek played substantial roles during WWII, specifically caring for wounded soldiers. Later, it became a series of training grounds for amphibious forces. JEB Little Creek-Fort Story was officially established in October 2009. Today, 18 large ships and a different mix of 126 smaller craft call the base home.


JEB Little Creek-Fort Story employs more than 18,000 military and civilian personnel. It is the largest military employer in Virginia Beach. The base covers nearly 4,000 acres with 7.6 miles of beachfront.


The Virginia Beach area is a busy mix of military and civilian life. The shore is a statewide vacation destination, and tourism substantially contributes to the economy. Locals learn to embrace the distant travelers and vacationers who arrive from other parts of the historic Hampton Roads region. Williamsburg, in particular, is a huge draw. America’s colonial roots stem from the entire area, permeating through the military and nonmilitary communities.  


One of the first tasks for anyone moving to JEB Little Creek-Fort Story is to become familiar with the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel system (HRBT). Bridges and tunnels are a way of life around here, and your housing location will undoubtedly depend on your preferred commute route. Backed-up tunnel and bridge traffic is a burden for everyone but eventually becomes another part of life in this coastal area.
