Happy Veterans Day! Service on the Seacoast & The Portsmouth Naval Shipyard

November 09, 2018 / Uncategorized


This Veterans Day Weekend, we honor all the men and women who have served or are serving our country steadfastly every day.  On the Seacoast, Veteran’s Day has particular significance as we are home to the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (PNSY).  The Shipyard was established in 1800, launching its first product, the USS Washington, in 1814. Since then, the Shipyard has spent centuries working on submarines and surface vessels, with a focus on repairing, overhauling and modernizing the Navy’s fleet. Impressively, the PNSY is one of only four naval shipyards remaining in the nation.


The PNSY has brought in military and civilian employees from all around the country who have called Kittery and the Seacoast their home. We are fortunate to have an eclectic mix of shipyard residents, those who have been here for decades and others who are new to the area, each bringing their own story, background, culture and knowledge to the community.


In celebration of Veterans Day, Aland Realty wants to recognize and thank the incredible individuals that have served in this historic community, and those who will join us in the future.


We have put together a list of some helpful resources below that may be useful for past, existing or future PNSY service members.
