The Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story (JEBLCFS) Family Team contributes to maximum military readiness by providing sustained superior service. The Joint Expeditionary Base is the major east coast operating base supporting Overseas Contingency Operations. Resident commands provide front line support personnel and the training venues that hone the skills of those front line operators. JEB Little Creek-Fort Story provides support and services to 144 shore-based resident commands and 18 home ported ships. JEB consists of nearly 4,000 acres of land and more than seven-and-a-half miles of beachfront training area with 61 piers. It is the only bare-beach JLOTS (Joint Logistics Over-The-Shore) training site within the Department of Defense (DoD); is home to the only east coast Advanced Explosive Ordnance Disposal Training facility; and provides training venues for Special Warfare Teams.
