Mission statement

Naval Station Newport provides the facilities and infrastructure essential to support the operations of tenant commands and visiting fleet units.

Current operations

The station was home of the decommissioned USS Saratoga (CV-60) after the departure of the USS Forrestal (CV-59) which departed under tow for the inactive ship storage facility in Philadelphia (USS Forrestal (CV-59)#Decommissioning and fate).

On May 8, 2014, Naval Sea Systems Command announced that ESCO Marine, Brownsville, Texas, would scrap Saratoga for one cent.[4] Currently, the Rhode Island Aviation Hall of Fame is trying to move the decommissioned USS John F. Kennedy (CV-67) moored at Pier 2 at the station.[5]
