Navy Region Southeast

The Commander, currently a one-star admiral, serves as one of three Navy regional coordinators on the East Coast, setting policy and providing the leadership and continuity necessary to sustain the highest quality, combat-ready force. Commander, Navy Region Southeast (COMNAVREGSE), leads the combined efforts of 14 commands and activities which support our operational fleet units in the southeastern United States and the Caribbean. As a subordinate of the Commander in Chief, US Atlantic Fleet, COMNAVREGSE serves as the Immediate Superior in Command of nine operational and five support commands.

The Commander also serves as the Navy's Regional Planning Agent, Regional Environmental and Public Affairs Coordinator and the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency liaison, as well as the Casualty Assistance Calls Officer in the eight southeastern states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee, and the Caribbean, Cuba, and Puerto Rico.

In its 2005 BRAC Recommendations, DoD recommended to consolidate Navy Region Gulf Coast with Navy Region Southeast at NAS Jacksonville, FL as part of its realignment of NAS Pensacola. In conjunction with other recommendations that would consolidate Navy Region Commands, this recommendation would reduce the number of Installation Management regions from twelve to eight, streamlining the regional management structure and allowing for opportunities to collocate other regional entities to further align management concepts and efficiencies. Consolidating Navy Regions would allow for more consistency in span of responsibility and would better enable Commander, Navy Installations, a position this recommendation would help to create, to provide operational forces support, community support, base support, and mission support to enhance the Navy's combat power.
