Welcome to NS Norfolk

Naval Station Norfolk is a United States Navy Base located in Norfolk, Virginia. The station supports naval forces in the United States Fleet Forces Command in the Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, and the Mediterranean Sea. The land for the naval site was purchased in 1917, and construction began for development of the base, including piers, aviation facilities, storehouses, fuel storage, and recreation grounds for fleet personnel. By 1918, there were 3,400 enlisted men at the base. By 1939, large battleships had converged on the Naval Station including the California, Idaho and New Mexico. Aircraft carriers such as the Ranger, and the Enterprise also called the station home. World War II brought exponential growth to the station that then employed over 8,000 personnel, the largest number ever employed by the base up to that point. In 1940, the naval aircraft program passed a production goal for 10,000 new airplanes. The station was host to more than 70 tenant commands including several aircraft carrier groups and Navy Air reserve units. The station also welcomed evacuees during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
