NWS Yorktown


Situated just west of Yorktown, VA, Naval Weapons Station Yorktown’s 37 tenant commands provide ordinance logistics, technical, supply and related services to the Atlantic Fleet. In addition, to the east of Yorktown is the U.S. Coast Guard Training Center, where thousands come to train in both entry-level and advanced training programs. The area surrounding Yorktown is rich in Colonial era and Civil War era history, with Yorktown playing a pivotal role in the American Revolution. It was here that General Cornwallis surrendered to General George Washington, effectively ending the Revolution. Our charm is a .925 sterling silver three-cornered hat, or tricorne, popular during colonial times. “NWS Yorktown VA” is inscribed on the bottom.
