Northeast Florida’s strong military presence is a celebrated tradition in the Jacksonville area. Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Naval Station Mayport, Kings Bay Naval Base, Camp Blanding Joint Training Center, Naval Aviation Depot Jacksonville and Marine Corps Blount Island Command provide employment to more than 50,000 active duty, reserve and civilian men and women. This brings the Navy’s local economic impact to more than $7.83 billion annually. Including spouses and children, there are more than 230,000 people in the military community on the First Coast.
