Fort Story, also known as Joint Expeditionary Base East, is an installation connected to the United States Navy and Little Creek Amphibious Base. Fort Story is also the Army’s only facility that trains troops with amphibious equipment. The location of Fort Story in Virginia Beach, Virginia provides a variety of different terrains to train military units, including dunes, sandy trails, surf, deep-water anchorage, tidal changes, and cypress swamps as well as open land. In 1941 before World War II, the Harbor Defense Headquarters was moved to Fort Story, which greatly expanded the base and in 1944 the coast was heavily fortified. The base was declared a permanent installment in 1961.
