Our troop has visited this area before, last time was summer 1997. We
visited Norfolk Naval Base (toured carrier USS Eisenhower) and did an
overnight at Oceana Naval Air Station. In the past we have also visited
Little Creek Naval Amphibeous Base and Langley Air Force Base.
These are the numbers for the main base operators. You'll have to ask for
the Public Affairs Office.
757/764-9990 Langley Air Force Base; Hampton, VA
757/464-7385 Little Creek Naval Amphibeous Base; Norfolk, VA
757/444-0000 Norfolk Naval Base; Norfolk, VA
757/433-2000 Oceana Naval Air Station; Virginia Beach, VA
There are many great things to see and do in this area. I don't know of
any overnights on ships however.
