Your U.S. Navy in the Northwest

Navy Region Northwest was originally established as the Thirteenth Naval District on May 7, 1903. It was renamed Naval Base Seattle in 1980 and subsequently renamed Navy Region Northwest in February 1999.

Commander, Navy Region Northwest provides consolidated base operations support for Navy activities in Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota and Iowa. The Commander oversees the assigned shore organization and provides facilities and space management, exercise coordination, and support to homeported and transient ships, submarines and aircraft as well as afloat and ashore tenants, military and family members.
