DID has more on Naval Station Pearl Harbor…

Naval Station Pearl Harbor was originally authorized in 1908, explains Globalsecurity.org. Dredging of the Pearl Harbor channel entrance began in 1910 and, on Dec. 14/11, USS California (CA-6) became the first warship to pass through the new channel into Pearl Harbor. Today, the Naval complex at Pearl Harbor serves as a major homeport and “pit stop of the Pacific” for the submarines and surface ships of the U.S. and Allied Pacific fleets.

Naval Station Pearl Harbor supports 50 homeported fleet units and 24 submarines. Naval Station’s fleet support mission is accomplished by a staff of nearly 2,000 military personnel and civilian employees. The station currently occupies and maintains 1,107 acres of land on Oahu Island, ranging from Waipio Peninsula to Bishop Point and including Ford Island. The current plant value of the Naval Station is in excess of $1 billion.
