We Celebrate Our Military Roots

Many residents of Atlantic Shores first experienced the area by being stationed here years ago, like Bob Sage. When the Navy brought Bob to Virginia Beach in 1963, he loved the city and years later, chose to retire here at Atlantic Shores.

Like hundreds of other retired military personnel, Atlantic Shores’ location in Virginia Beach allows our veterans like Bob to live 5-10 minutes from amenities that they utilize daily like the Commissary, the Navy Exchange, beaches, golf courses, medical services, and recreational facilities.

As they return to Virginia Beach from all over the country, Atlantic Shores counts it an honor to serve our retired veterans and their spouses who served us so faithfully.
