A Naval Station is an American military term meaning "any establishment for the building, manufacturing, docking, repair, supply, or training under control of the Navy. It may also include several establishments".
The United States Department of the Navy's description is somewhat different to the Royal Navy according to it's General Order No 135 issued in 1911 as a formal guide to Naval Terms described a Naval Station as "any establishment for building, manufacturing, docking, repair, supply, or training under control of the Navy. It may also include several establishments". A Naval Base by contrast was "a point from which naval operations may be conducted"
