Middletown Minutes
75th Anniversary of Navy Station Earle
Committeeman Tony Fiore presented a proclamation on behalf of Middletown Township commemorating NWS Earle's 75th Anniversary on Friday, June 8th.

Naval Weapons Station Earle Celebrates 75thth Anniversary


Naval Weapons Station Earle celebrated its 75th Anniversary on Friday, June 8th at the station's Mainside located in Colts Neck. The event featured a formal ceremony, entertainment, information booths from the Navy, Marine Corps and federal and local agencies, as well as a time capsule display that had been buried during the 50th anniversary of the station.

NWS Earle first took shape as World War II operations demanded an ammunition depot away from densely populated areas. NWS Earle loaded the majority of ammunition used by the Allies for the invasion of Normandy, an achievement for which Normandy Road is named. Since that time, NWS Earle continues to be an integral part of the Navy and vital in keeping our nation safe. Committeeman Tony Fiore delivered a proclamation from Middletown Township to commemorate the occasion and expressed how honored we are to have the Waterfront based in our community.
