Pearl Harbor military base Wiki: US sailor wounds three civilians in shooting – shooting at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard Several Injured

About Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard Wiki

The Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard is a United States Navy shipyard located in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. It is one of just four shipyards operated by the United States Navy. The shipyard is physically a part of Naval Station Pearl Harbor.

The Naval Station had existed in Pearl Harbor since 1898, but in 1908 the United States Congress allocated $3 million to build the shipyard, then called Navy Yard Pearl Harbor. The shipyard grew quickly, and work began on the first drydock, which collapsed before opening in 1913. After rebuilding, Dry Dock #1 was opened on August 21, 1919.  Through these years, the shipyard was just a part of the Naval Station. The shipyard officially became its own entity in December 1945 as part of the Navy’s effort to separate the military from industrial operations.

The shipyard has grown to four drydocks, which are mainly used for repairing and maintaining nuclear submarines.
