About

Established in 1903, U.S. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay is the oldest overseas military installation and the only one in a communist country. Located on the southeast corner of Cuba, in the Oriente Province, the installation is approximately 400 air miles from Miami, Florida. The primary mission of the naval station is to serve as a strategic logistics base for the Navy’s Atlantic Fleet, allied, and partner navies; support counter narcotic operations in the Caribbean; provide contingency logistics; and support migrant operations.

Naval Station Guantanamo Bay is essential to national maritime strategy and is the cornerstone of joint U.S. military and governmental operations in the U.S. Southern Command area of operations. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay continually strengthens our nation’s ability to maneuver from the sea and provides regional humanitarian relief through quality logistical support of fleet, federal agencies, and the joint service community operating in the Caribbean. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay’s unique location optimizes U.S. response to catastrophic regional events. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay stands on the front lines of Caribbean regional security initiatives through direct support of counternarcotic operations, terrorism, and contingency migrant efforts.
