Welcome to Soundings

${givenName}, The Navy in the Northwest takes it's responsibility of communicating with the public seriously. As the next step in our efforts to keep the public informed, we have revived Soundings as an electronic newsletter. We want this to become a direct link between you and your Navy.

Soundings is a monthly newsletter that will provide you with updates, insights, and activities featuring your Navy in the Northwest. The definition of soundings is the action or process of measuring the depth of the sea or other body of water and provides feedback to the ship's crew as they proceed on a voyage. We would like Soundings to provide you with information that may help you on your journey.

Whether you are interested in our new releases, our environmental updates, or base closures and emergency notifications, we encourage you to sign up for what interests you. Please share this with others that may also be interested. They can sign up and receive information on the topics they choose by visiting our subscription sign-up page.
