Moving is a way of life for service members and their families. Resources like MilitaryINSTALLATIONS, Plan My Move and Military OneSource provide important information to help make moving easier. For many newcomers, a sponsor can help add that personal touch.
A sponsor is assigned by a newcomer's gaining unit and helps the newcomer before, during and after a move. If you haven't been assigned a sponsor, you can request one through your new unit. Units try to match sponsors and service members by rank and family status.

Sponsorship is also available for youth. Installation youth sponsorship programs help military-connected youth make a successful transition to a new community. Primarily directed to preteen and teenaged youth, installation youth programs/centers provide information and materials on programs and services available at their new location. Where available, youth can exchange emails, talk on the phone or chat online with other youth. The youth program staff at your new installation can offer more information on installation youth sponsorship programs.
You can also contact your installation School Liaison Program office for information about school-based youth sponsorship programs such as Anchored4Life and Student2Student. These peer-to-peer programs help your student adjust to and navigate their new school.
If your child would like to become a youth sponsor, contact your installation School Liaison Program or youth program/center.
Families with children may also want to visit Military Kids Connect, an online community for military children and youth. The site offers games, videos and links to teen-led installation tours.
Each time you move you should request a sponsor prior to your arrival. Your sponsor will provide you and your family with installation and community information. Your sponsor should assist with pre-arrival arrangements, answer questions, meet you personally upon arrival, and ensure your move to JBLE goes smoothly and all your in-processing needs are met. If you have not been assigned a sponsor, use the "Request a Sponsor" link at the right of this page. Your message will be sent to the JBLE - Langley Airman & Family Readiness Center or Army Community Center, and they will do everything possible to make sure your sponsor request is answered.
To assist you in your arrival, you may have your mail forwarded to General Delivery at the Postal Service Center (PSC). Use your name instead of the words "General Delivery" in the address. Not doing this could cause your mail to get misrouted by the United States Postal Service. You can contact the Langley Post Office at 757-764-2200, DSN 312-574-2200.
