A Brief History of Naval Base Kitsap
In 2004, the former Naval Station Bremerton and the Naval Submarine Base Bangor were combined to make the now Naval Base Kitsap. Bangor was established in the early 1940s as a protective force against the threat of Japanese submarines. Bremerton is noted as the base where protestors broke in to chain themselves to and chant over the nuclear weapons in protest. However, this base also became the first to have an electric vehicle, making it the first installation to move into alternative energy, at least for transportation on the base. The combining of these bases made Naval Base Kitsap the third largest Naval base in the United States, and one of the few installations established in the 21st Century. Located in the Kitsap Peninsula in Washington State, the base acts as a home base with operating services for the West Puget Sound Naval fleet. It has since become one of the largest Navy bases in the United States. The Bremerton facility has nine piers, and the Puget Sound shipyard has six dry docks.

In 2005, the Naval Base Kitsap received the Commander in Chief’s Award for Installation Excellence for the Best Base in the US Navy. By 2010, the Naval Base Kitsap acquired three hybrid busses, with five more busses delivered later on that year, funded through the GSA American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Naval Base Kitsap hosts 14 submarines of all three classes, the only base to do so. Outside of this, the base offers community oriented events, such as Warrior Workouts, coastal cleanup days, and endurance cycling.
