Washington's military might

Naval Station, Everett

The principal mission of the base is to support services and trained personnel for a Carrier Battle Group operating out of the Pacific Northwest. The base opened in 1992 when a $56 million carrier pier was completed.

Serves as the homeport to seven Navy ships and a Coast Guard vessel, including the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln, which is currently undergoing an overhaul at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. The base is also homeport to the Spruance-class destroyers USS David R. Ray and USS Fife; Perry-class frigates USS Ford, USS Ingraham, USS Paul Foster and Rodney M. Davis. The USS Shoup, one of the Navy's newest Arleigh Burke-class destroyers, will join Naval Station Everett next year. The Northwest's newest military installation is also home to the Commander Naval Surface Group Pacific Northwest, Destroyer Squadron 9, Fleet Industrial Supply Center and Ship Intermediate Maintenance Activity.
