FORT EUSTIS HISTORY, 100 years and beyond...
The #MatthewJones House is a historic plantation house located on #FortEustis. The house sits on a hill toward the northern end of Mulberry Island, overlooking the James River.
It was built around 1725 as a one-and-a-half-story frame dwelling with brick chimneys and later underwent two major renovations. During the first renovation in 1730, the walls were bricked in and a shed room and porch tower were added. During the second in 1893, the house was raised to a full two stories. In 1918 the house and its surrounding land were acquired by the U.S. government for the establishment of an army post.
By the end of the twentieth century, the Matthew Jones House had fallen into grave disrepair. In 1993 it was preserved and rehabilitated by the National Park Service in cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Today it serves as an architectural museum and is the oldest house in the Department of Defense history.

Lt. Col. Cheryl Buehn pushes herself and her counterparts to the limit every day in her roles as both a United States Air Force instructor pilot and adversary air pilot, in which she helps F-22 Raptor pilots train for combat.
While she is currently the only woman flying the T-38 Talon at her squadron, that is not even a factor to her as the cockpit is the 'Ultimate Equalizer.'

No, AirPower Over Hampton Roads didn’t start today.
BUT, US Air Force Thunderbirds commander, Lt. Col. Kevin Walsh was visiting for training, and had the opportunity to test the flight line for the upcoming air show, which does take place May 18-21. #AFThunderbirds
What a busy weekend #Soldiers from the 597th Transportation Brigade - SDDC had!
A subordinate unit of the JBLE-based brigade, the 841st Transportation Battalion, SDDC, loaded more than 1,000 vehicles belonging to the 82nd Airborne Division onto the U.S. Navy's largest roll-on/roll-off ship, the USNS Watson, at Joint Base Charleston, S.C.
The ship will sail to Port Arthur, Texas, and then to JRTC and Fort Polk, Louisiana. Now that's what we call U.S. Army rapid support!
Where are you going to be at lunch today? Why not come meet the former Secretary of State, U.S. Army General (Ret.) Colin Powell at his book signing at the BX, 11 am to 1 pm
March 1918, the Army purchased Mulberry Island and the surrounding acreage for $538,000 in response to World War I. Camp Abraham Eustis was established as a coast artillery replacement center for #FortMonroe and a balloon observation school. Named for Brevet Brigadier General Abraham Eustis, the first commanding officer of Fort Monroe, it became Fort Eustis and a permanent military installation in 1923.
In 2010, the 2005 Base Realignment, Allocation and Closure (BRAC) Act consolidated Fort Eustis with Langley Air Force Base to become Joint Base Langley-Eustis.
