Naval Station Everett’s history began in 1983 when the Secretary of the Navy first proposed a new Puget Sound area naval base as part of the Strategic Homeport concept. On April 17, 1984, Everett was selected from among 13 ports as the ideal location for the new homeport. Congress approved the first funds for construction on Oct. 2, 1986 and the official ground breaking ceremony was on Nov. 9, 1987. The Navy awarded the $56 million carrier pier construction contract on Sept. 9, 1988, and in June 1992, three Navy ships participated in the formal opening of the new pier.
Naval Station Everett is the Navy’s newest and most modern facility. Our mission is to enhance our Nation’s ability to accomplish strategic objectives, by providing superior shore station support to United States Naval and Coast Guard forces, while ensuring readiness and quality of life for Sailors, Civilians and their Families.
There are about 6,000 Sailors and Civil Service personnel assigned to commands located at Naval Station Everett.
Currently, there is no base transportation on this installation.
Prior to your arrival, your new command should have assigned you a sponsor. He or she is an invaluable resource during your relocation and serves as a liaison to your new command and community. If you have not received a sponsor prior to your arrival, one can still be assigned during your check-in process.
Once settled in to your new command, service members will be required to attend a base indoctrination to become familiar with the facilities and services.
