(38)

One of three major Navy installations in the Jacksonville area, Mayport is unique in that it is home to a busy seaport as well as an air facility. We are the “Finest Service to the Finest Fleet.”

Since its commissioning in December 1942, Naval Station Mayport has grown to become the third-largest fleet concentration area in the United States. Mayport’s operational composition is unique, with an a

ctive basin capable of accommodating 34 ships and an 8,000-foot runway that can handle any aircraft in the Department of Defense inventory. With more than 3,400 acres, the Naval Station is host to more than 70 tenant commands, including a growing collection of ships, the USCGS Valiant (WMEC 621) and NS Hunter (MSR 8202), Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron 40, 46, 48 and Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron Light 60. Naval Station Mayport is also the operational and training headquarters for the SH-60R Seahawk LAMPS MK III with a primary mission of anti-submarine warfare. The base is situated at the mouth of the St. Johns River and the Atlantic Ocean near the small fishing village of Mayport, Florida, and neighboring Atlantic Beach, Florida. The warm climate here makes it ideal for year-round outdoor recreation, including boating, camping, fishing and water sports. Although Jacksonville has nearly 1 million residents, including 225,000 with Navy affiliation, the population is spread over a large geographic area, providing ample residential areas. Checking-In:

Temporary base visitor passes are issued at the Pass and ID (AKA Pass and Decal) office in the security building just before the main gate. The installation quarterdeck is in Naval Station Headquarters Building 1 (on Massey Avenue across from Navy Federal Credit Union and the Fleet NEX). Personnel with PCS orders to Naval Station Mayport should report here on arrival. Those reporting to a tenant command should report to that command’s quarterdeck. Personnel ordered to a ship should report directly to their ship if in port. If the ship is not in, check in with the Naval Station’s quarterdeck for assistance. You must be in uniform when checking-in. The service dress blue uniform is universally accepted as a travel uniform and may be worn at check-in, regardless of season. Ombudsman Assistance:

Ombudsman Kesha Hoebbel can be reached at (904) 563-1251 or at [email protected].

🎉Welcome Home!! 🇺🇸

Today we welcomed back the USS Thomas Hudner to our pier after eight months deployed. All of their family and friends waited to greet them. 👏👏

Hudner deployed as a part of the Gerald R. Ford Carrier Strike Group (CSG) to the U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa area of operations in support of theater security cooperation efforts and to defend U.S., allied, and partner interests.

During their deployment, Thomas Hudner served as an air defense unit for the strike group off the coast of Israel, and worked closely with Allies and Partners on a variety of missions.
