The mission of Submarine Base New London is to provide a Base Operations Support infrastructure for the operating forces of the Navy, Naval organizations and tenants; as well as to assess and improve installation management functions, quality of products, and perform other functions and tasks as may be assigned.
New London is the Navy's first Submarine Base and the "Home of the Submarine Force."In 1868, the State of Connecticut gave the Navy 112 acres of land along the Thames River to build a Naval Station. Due to a lack of federal funding, it was not until 1872 that two brick buildings and a "T" shaped pier were constructed and officially declared a Navy Yard. This new yard was primarily used as a coaling station by Atlantic Fleet small craft.
In 1915, the monitor Ozark, a submarine tender, and four submarines arrived in Groton,CT. With the war effort in Europe and the Atlantic in full swing, additional submarines and support craft arrived the following year and the facility was named the Navy's first Submarine Base. Although physically located in Groton, CT. the base had its main offices and housing in the larger city of New London, so it was christened as Naval Submarine Base New London. Following World War I, the Navy established schools and training facilities at the base. Today, Naval Submarine Base New London proudly claims its motto to be "The First and Finest."
As home port to 15 attack submarines and a major submarine construction yard; all officers and most enlisted submariners will be stationed here for training, a tour aboard an attack submarine, or with a pre-commissioning crew while their new submarine is under construction. The main base occupies more than 687 acres and boasts more than 530 acres of family housing. The base supports more than 70 tenant commands including: Commander Submarine Group 2, Naval Submarine School, Naval Submarine Support Facility, three submarine squadron staffs, and housing and support facilities. For more information visit the New London homepage.
The base serves an active duty population of about 7,500 personnel accompanied by 12,000 family members. The base also is the host to Naval Reserve Units, an Army detachment and a host of Department of Defense, civilian personnel, and contractors; In addition, the United States Coast Guard Academy is located across the Thames River on the west bank, in New London.
