Naval Station Everett is the Navy’s newest and most modern facility.

This guide is designed to help newcomers become familiar with Naval Station Everett and the surrounding area.

Prior to your arrival, your new command should have assigned you a sponsor. He or she is an invaluable resource during your relocation and serves as a liaison to your new command and community. If you have not received a sponsor prior to your arrival, one can still be assigned during your check-in process.
Once settled in to your new command, service members will be required to attend a base indoctrination to become familiar with the facilities and services.
