A Brief History of the Mayport Naval Station
Initially, the Mayport Naval Station in Florida acted as the homeport for conventionally powered aircraft carriers. Commissioned in 1942, it has over the years changed and grown, now the third largest station at 3,409 acres, harboring up to 34 ships as well as a runway long enough to accommodate most Department of Defense aircraft. It also acted as a Sea Frontier Base, in essence a maintenance and submarine refueling base. Though traditionally powered aircraft carriers have been decommissioned, there is a plethora of upgrades planned for the historic station. Prior to the United States Navy utilizing the port, it was an outpost for the French first, then the Spanish. However, at the time of the American Civil War, the Jacksonville Light Infantry of the US military took over the first military use of the port. Today, Mayport Naval Station employs 14,000 active-duty personnel and 1,400 civilian employees.
Ships of the Mayport Naval Station
Today, the station has about 24 ships berthed in the basin. This includes guided-missile cruisers, destroyers, and even guided-missile frigates. The Mayport Naval Station has housed some of the most historic aircraft carriers, such as the John F. Kennedy, the Saratoga, the Franklin D. Roosevelt, and the Shangri-La, one of the first carriers to dock at Mayport. The naval station continues to act as, strategically, one of the most important seaports. The base continues to match the needs of the nation as well as the advancements of the military, providing a defensive base from which to protect the United States. Currently the station houses 55 tenant commands and 17 ships, though there is room to add another 23 ships. In 2016 eight new combat ships from Marinette, Wisconsin will be home-ported here, with plans for a 67,000 foot expansion facility later in 2015.
