Andrews Airforce Base Area Apartment Housing(hide military information)
Located about 12 miles southeast of Washington, DC and 12 miles east of Alexandria, Virginia, Andrews Air Force Base is probably most well-known for being the home base for Air Force One, the two aircraft that serve the President of the United States. Air Force One is assigned to the 89th Airlift Wing Air Mobility Command, or “the President’s Wing.” The 89th Airlift Wing also provides service for visiting dignitaries.
Andrews Air Force Base merged with the Naval Air Facility Washington in 2009 and the joined facility is called Joint Base Andrews. The 11th Wing is the host unit for the base. This unit is a non-flying unit that is responsible for maintaining emergency response capabilities that are critical to national security.
Of course, when it is time to relax, the Courses at Andrews delivers an afternoon of golf on its three 18-hole championship courses. Facilities include a fitness center, food outlets, practice facilities, and a golf shop.
For those looking for apartments near Andrews Air Force Base, Camp Springs is the closest community, bordering the western edge of the base. This small community has a decidedly rural atmosphere, even though it is just a short distance from Washington, DC.
