Our best recommendation is to register for childcare as soon as you have orders to San Diego. There are two types of Navy Sponsored Child Care available in the San Diego area. The first option is the on-base child care facilities or Child Development Centers (CDC), however, these facilities are not located at all area installations. Second option is the Navy's network of in-home child care providers, who are licensed and regulated by the CDC as well as the State of California. To check availability, please visit website. For more childcare information please see the Childcare section.
Defense Service Network (DSN) Dialing Instructions
The DSN is the provider of long-distance communications service for the Department of Defense (DoD). Every installation has a special DSN number and the numbers vary by world-wide location. In order to place a call using DSN, the caller must be using a military phone on an installation. Cell phones cannot dial DSN numbers. When dialing a DSN number from a United States installation to another United States installation, it is unnecessary to dial the DSN 312 area code. When dialing a DSN number to/from overseas locations, the DSN area code must be included. The operator can be reached at commercial (719) 567-1110. Please note that long distance charges may be incurred.
In order to support the Fleet, Fighter and Family, our goal is to provide the highest quality base operating support and quality of life services to U.S. Navy operating forces and other assigned and visiting activities. We seek to provide the right support, at the right time, in the right amount, enabling operating forces to produce the right level of combat readiness.
To serve as the Navy's "West Coast Quarterdeck" by directing and delivering base operating support programs and services that exceed customer expectations and contribute to the operational readiness of both ashore and afloat commands at Naval Base Coronado.
Naval Base Coronado supports the Navy's mission and drive for increased combat readiness by providing complementary and effective infrastructure in the form of runways, piers, training ranges, and facilities to Fleet operating forces, while simultaneously delivering superlative quality of life and wellness services for our Sailors and our families.
Naval Air Station North Island (NASNI) was commissioned in 1917 and was the major continental U.S. base supporting the operating forces in the Pacific during World War II. At that time, the City of Coronado became home to most of the aircraft factory workers and dependents of NASNI, which was working around the clock. NASNI is home for Naval Base Coronado (NBC) Commanding Officer and leadership.
Naval Base Coronado (NBC) was established in 1997 and incorporated eight separate naval installations under the Commanding Officer at NASNI.
Those facilities include:
These eight installations inhabit more than 57,000 acres and employ over 36,000 military and civilian personnel, making NBC the largest command in the Southwest Region with over 30% of the Region’s total workforce.
