Naval Support Activity Naples Detachment (NSAND) is located in the town of Gaeta, Italy. Halfway between Rome and Naples, the town of Gaeta is a tourist summer resort town with beautiful beaches and historic treasures. Since leaving Ville Franche, France in 1967, the U.S. Sixth Fleet flagship has resided in Gaeta, Italy. The Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean Sea encompasses task forces, battle groups, amphibious forces, support ships, land-based surveillance aircraft, and submarines. Its role has been important since the early 19th century to the U.S. Navy's commitment to forward presence.
The primary mission of Naval Support Activity Naples Detachment Gaeta Italy is to provide and maintain facilities and services to support the CNE/COMSIXTHFLT, COMDESRON SIX ZERO, and USS MOUNT WHITNEY personnel, along with their families stationed in the Gaeta area. In addition, Naval Support Activity Gaeta also supports a NATO telecommunications school (NCISS) located approximately 50 miles north of Gaeta in the province of Latina.
