Naval Support Activity Mid-South is among the US military bases with the highest number of units hosted on site. Its mission is to support the global warfighter presence and our vision is effective support at efficient cost. They believe in integrity, respect, honesty, trust, teamwork, diversity and involvement. They are committed to quality, innovation, communication, responsiveness, timeliness, fiscal responsibility and accountability. They will achieve these values by taking care of each other, taking care of the customer and doing the right thing. One of their major commands is Navy Personnel Command.


The base was initially built to train pilots for World War I. It opened its gates in the autumn of 1917 and was known as Park Field. By 1918, it became one of the most important bases in the world. The schools there didn’t train US military troops only, but also troops coming from the allied countries. However, later that year, the activity dropped as World War I ended. It took 48 hours for the operations to be shut down after the armistice. In the upcoming years, the place was used for mail airlines around Tennessee and the surrounding states. Within a few years, the place was also turned in a storage place for old planes and parts. At that time, it was actually purchased by the US government.


The beginning of World War II had a similar result as World War I. The base was suddenly brought to life and the naval aviation was sent there. As World War Ii reached to an end too, the base activity was ceased again. A new base was established close to it in 1949. They started working and completing each other due to the limited facilities. A base realignment commission from 1993 completely changed the base objectives. In 1998, it was renamed to what it is today.
