Road Trip: Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach, California

Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach is a United States Navy weapons and munitions loading, storage and maintenance facility located in Seal Beach, California with detachments in Concord, Fallbrook, and San Diego, all also in California.

The command exists to provide base operating support to the Navy's ordnance mission. Command and tenant personnel provide munitions receipt, segregation, inspection, maintenance, storage, issue, and assessment services to Navy operating forces and other Department of Defense and homeland security entities. Overall, the command supports the provisioning of missiles, torpedoes, and other ordnance to a majority of the U.S. Pacific Fleet.

NWS Seal Beach occupies 5,256 acres, has 230 buildings and 128 ammunition magazines providing 589,299 feet of ammunition storage space. Ammunition is moved from storage to the docks on 56 miles of railroad line and 80 miles of road. The base owns 130 pieces of railroad rolling stock and 230 trucks and trailers to move the ammunition which is loaded onto ships using six mobile cranes that can lift up to 90 tons.

The Weapons Station is also home to the West Coast site of the World War II Submarine Memorial. The Memorial is dedicated to the over 3000 submariners who lost their lives in United States submarines in the 52 submarines lost during WWII. There are also plaques dedicated to those who lost their lives in submarine accidents during the Cold War. The Memorial is located outside the main entrance to the Weapons Station on Seal Beach Boulevard and is accessible to the public.

Not to worry...you are not the first and won’t be the last. I never notice mine til I hit Post.

Did your day go well? The commutes safe and relatively quick? *HUGS*

The guy on the news just said clouds are coming in and we may not be able to see the moon tonight. Nuts!!

Last night as I was going to bed the moon peeked thru the clouds. Fingers crossed for tonight.

Smooth commutes in both directions today, thanks!

I'm afraid we'll be shut out on the Blood Moon - cloudy now - rain expected between now and tomorrow morning. It was supposed to start raining earlier this evening - radar indicates it's still about an hour or more away.

Nice place. Been there many times. I used to be a member of the credit union there.
Also had a buddy who was a beekeeper who had a bunch of hives on the base.
