    Seattle Naval Air Station (NAS Seattle) Washington State United States

Located in Seattle.

Built prewar. During July 1939, President Roosevelt and Congress authorized $4 million for improvments to the base. By June 1941, four month aviation service schools were turning out radiomen, aviation metalsmiths, and aviation machinists.

Wartime History
At the start of the Pacific war, NAS Seattle relinquished its patrol squadrons for combat duty in Alaska. Twelve planes arrived in Kodiak Naval Air Station just prior to the Japanese attack on that location.
