Bangor - Naval Base Kitsap - Silverdale, WA

SUBASE Bangor's military history began in 1942 when it became the site for shipping ammunition to the Pacific theater during World War II. After the Navy purchased 7,676 acres near the town of Bangor for approximately $18.7 million, the U.S. Naval Magazine was established June 5, 1944 and began operations in January 1945.

From World War II, and through the Korean and Vietnam conflicts, until January 1973, Bangor continued its role as a U.S. Ammunition Depot responsible for shipping conventional weapons abroad.

The Navy announced the selection of Bangor as homeport for the first squadron of TRIDENT submarines in 1973. An Environmental Impact Statement was published in July 1974 and construction began in October 1974. On 1 February 1977, SUBASE was officially activated. In May 1987, SUBASE Bangor was awarded the Commander in Chief's Installation Excellence Award, otherwise known as the "Best Base in the Navy" award. In June 1989, the Secretary of the Navy presented SUBASE Bangor the Environmental Quality Award for "effectively melding the operational requirements of the Navy with the national objectives of protecting and improving the environment.
