Adak Army Base and Adak Naval Operating Base

Adak Station, AlaskaAdak Army Base and Adak Naval Operating Base

  • It was declared a National Historic Landmark on February 27, 1987.

Established in 1942, these World War II installations were the westernmost in the nation for a short while, and allowed American forces to mount a successful offensive against the Japanese-held Aleutian islands of Kiska and Attu.  Until very recently, Adak, located about 1,400 air miles southwest of Anchorage, remained an active naval station.

The recently-changed ownership is committed to economic development at the expense of the World War II installations.
