Road Trip: Naval Base San Diego, California

Naval Base San Diego is the largest base of the United States Navy on the west coast of the United States, in San Diego, California. Naval Base San Diego is the principal homeport of the Pacific Fleet, consisting of 60 ships and an additional 50 tenant commands. The base is comprised of 14 piers stretched over 977 acres of land and 326 acres of water. The total on base population is 35,000 military personnel and 7,000 civilians.

A thoroughly modern, state-of-the-art naval facility, Naval Base San Diego is now homeport to approximately 50 ships, including 37 U.S. Navy ships, two U.S. Coast Guard cutters and various ships of the Military Sealift Command, as well as research and auxiliary vessels. Now, the base welcomes the Navy’s newest and most advanced 21st century fleet platforms known as Littoral Combat Ships.



Ashore, Naval Base San Diego is also home to approximately 100 separate tenant commands and other Navy support facilities, each having specific and specialized fleet support missions.

Naval Base San Diego today is a city within a city, providing the same services as any metropolitan district, not just to its inhabitants – the Sailors and other personnel who call the base its workplace or home – but the pier-side needs of the ships as well.

Direct services include power, water and steam; hard and wireless communication lines, repair and training facilities. Support services includes less direct and indirect fleet support: waterfront operations, force protection (security), supply, Navy Exchange and Commissary shopping centers, bachelor quarters, food services, and public affairs.

Other services also supported are administration, transient personnel administration fiscal management, equal employment opportunity, civil engineering, family services, recreation on the base and near various military family housing areas, medical and dental care, religious services, transportation, utilities, legal support, counseling and assistance, facility maintenance, fire protection, educational services, and child care for more than 300 children daily at the base Child Development Center.

Learn More About Naval Base San Diego HERE!

San Diego has one of the richest aviation heritages of any city in the country. Convair, home of such famous aircraft as the B-24 Liberator and the PBY Catalina, was founded here. Ryan Aeronautical, home of Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis, was located here, and North Island Naval Air Station is the home of naval aviation. Much of that knowledge is captured and conveyed through the San Diego Air & Space Museum, a major institution unique to the region and one of the preeminent aviation museums in the nation.

In 1986 the Museum became the first aero-themed museum to be accredited by the American Association of Museums, and it is now a Smithsonian affiliate. The California Legislature voted to declare the Museum "California's official Air and Space Museum and Education Center. Because of San Diego's contributions to aviation and aerospace history and technology, it is only fitting that the Museum is now recognized as one of the country's premier aerospace museums.

Now I See

April 23, 2013

Deborah Kendrick loves to attend Broadway musicals even though she is blind and always struggles to understand the setting and the movements of the characters onstage. Recently, however, she attended a play that used D-Scriptive, a new technology that conveys the visual elements of the stage production through a small FM receiver. A recorded narration, keyed to the show’s light and sound boards, describes the set and the action as it unfolds onstage. Writing in The Columbus Dispatch, Deborah said, “If you ask me if I saw a show last week in New York, my answer is yes . . . I genuinely, unequivocally mean that I saw the show.”

Her experience struck me as a vivid illustration of the Holy Spirit’s role in our understanding of God’s Word. Just before Jesus went to the cross, He told His followers that “the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you” (John 14:26).

As we open the Bible to read or study, the Spirit of Truth is with us to guide us into all truth (16:13). On our own we are blind, but through the guidance of God’s Holy Spirit we can see.

Break Thou the bread of life, dear Lord, to me,
As Thou didst break the loaves beside the sea.
Beyond the sacred page I seek Thee, Lord;
My spirit pants for Thee, O Living Word. —Lathbury
The Father gave the Spirit to teach us from the Word.

Read: John 14:15-27

The Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. —John 14:26
Bible in a Year:
2 Samuel 16-18; Luke 17:20-37

I was stationed at the old Convair facility.
It was General Dynamics an Navelex at the time.
Now the entire facility is Spawar.

Loads of history and mystery.

When I lived in Tidewater Virginia, they always said that Norfolk was the largest base in the Navy. This says San Diego. Which one is correct?

The best museum I have ever seen outside the Smithsonian is the museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola.

Looks warm there. I am about to get my snow shovel covered with snow again. 24 inches last week and could get that much again.

It is all Al Gore’s fault.

This article says Naval Station San Diego is the largest on the WEST coast. Norfolk’s naval station is the largest in the world, as I understand.

Oh it’s still there in Old Town.
The original buildings.

It is interesting that there is virtually no record of Navelex having ever been there.
Had it not been for the EPA discovering PCB leaks I think there would have been no record.(we left no foot print LoL) The leaks were found 1 year prior to my enlistment ending.

Good evening, yarddog.....

Naval Station Norfolk is the world's largest naval station, supporting 75 ships and 134 aircraft alongside 14 piers and 11 aircraft hangars, and houses the largest concentration of U.S. Navy forces.

Naval Base San Diego is the largest base of the United States Navy on the west coast of the United States, in San Diego, California.

Looks like Norfolk is THE biggest, but San Diego is the biggest on the WEST coast.

I bet SD was great back then.
It was pretty conservative and country when I was got there in 1980.

What is the largest Air Force base and largest Army base in U.S.?

Gosh, yarddog, I'm a Navy vet--I can talk about naval bases, maybe even some Marine bases, but I couldn't even venture a guess at the Army or Air Force. Interesting question. Probably depends on what you're measuring by-number of troops, aircraft, acres or square miles...
