75th Anniversary Celebration: Naval Weapons Station Earle


Colts Neck, N.J. – Members of our surrounding community are invited to attend a special 75thAnniversary Celebration on Naval Weapons Station Earle’s mainside facility located on Route 35, June 8 from noon to 7 p.m.


Established on Dec. 13, 1943, then Naval Ammunition Depot Earle provided most of the ammunition and ordnance used by American troops during the Allied invasion of Normandy in WWII. Since that significant beginning, the station has spent the past quarter of a century ensuring our armed forces have the means to take the fight to America’s enemies around the world.


The event offers the community a rare opportunity to come onto the station and learn about our unique mission right here in Monmouth County.
