NSGA Northwest supports a diverse group of tenant commands, from providing environmental stewardship to preserve the 3,900 acres of farm and wetlands in the Southeastern corner of Virginia, to cutting-edge cryptologic support to global U.S. Navy operations.

NSGA Northwest was established in 1975, and is south of Chesapeake, Va., about 40 minutes from the Norfolk Naval Base. Children attend public and private schools in the surrounding communities. There are two major civilian hospitals near the base, both providing comprehensive medical treatment. A medical clinic has an acute care and outpatient facility.

The beach is not far away, and there are rivers, streams, and ponds on base. Other base recreation includes bowling, video games, a pool table, pool, fishing hole, baseball fields, tennis courts, basketball court, stables at Oceana, pick your own strawberries, and Bergey's Dairy,where you can learn how to milk a cow or go on a hayride. Humid summers and mild winters characterize Chesapeake's mild weather.
