Naval Support Activity Annapolis is a military installation operated by the United States Navy in Maryland, on the Severn River. It is located in the central part of the state. It spreads over around 1,500 acres and consists of about 400 buildings. It is one of the largest military bases owned by the United States Navy. It is better known among the natives for the airshows provided by Blue Angels. Blue Angels represent a group of expert and professional pilots performing amazing stunts in various parts of the United States of America. They manage to gather together impressive crowds and both official representatives and civilian fans.
NSA Annapolis aims to gather together a tight team of experts in the military and civilian fields. They work together in a strict collaboration to provide some of the best services and operations. Their dedication and hard work are the two major factors that took the base where it is today. The base inhabitants represent one of the priorities. The high quality facilities have always been updated and upgraded for the military troops and civilians to feel like home. Whether you count the recreational spots, the dining facilities or the internal health care system, all these facilities definitely raise to the expectations. All people are treated equally, whether they are military troops, civilian contractors, employees and families or retired individuals. The activities on site keep the people entertained.
The experts on site embrace the operations and missions conducted by both the United States Navy and the Department of Defense. The tenants on site represent the primary mission of the base and their missions have always been given full support through a moral conduct.
NSA Annapolis became the main installation of the United States Navy in 1911. It is responsible for hosting the first naval air station in the US Navy history. At the same time, the base also holds the record for the first flight from a naval air station. Therefore, its history began with two major achievements that opened a lot of doors for the upcoming decades. Back then, the installation was not a very modern one. It started gaining popularity prior to World War II.
In 1939, multiple ships were deployed there. It was a great move before World War II. The base played a major role throughout the war. Its effectiveness convinced the authorities to invest in it even before the war was actually over. In 1943, the base was taken through an expansion project. About 123 extra acres were purchased to expand the installation and improve the living conditions on site, especially for some of the sailors. More than 800 troops benefited from this process. Most of them were hosted on USS Cumberland and USS Reina Mercedes. The same year brought in a few other extra facilities.
After World War II, the activity at NSA Annapolis dropped a little, but the facility still remained one of the most important ones in the United States Navy. These days, there are around 600 inhabitants only, both military troops and civilian personnel.
