Naval Support Activity (NSA) Mid-South was first commissioned as a Naval Reserve Air Base (NRAB) on September 15, 1942, and was used to train pilots and ground crews for World War I. There have been many name changes since that time. In October 1998, the base became the home to NSA Mid-South to more closely identify the base's mission requirements and to reflect the Navy's approach to regionalization. It is host to many tenant activities and covers 1,600 acres.


Our mission is to support the global warfighter presence and our vision is effective support at efficient cost. We believe in integrity, respect, honesty, trust, teamwork, diversity and involvement. We are committed to quality, innovation, communication, responsiveness, timeliness, fiscal responsibility and accountability. We will achieve these values by taking care of each other, taking care of the customer and doing the right thing. One of our major commands is Navy Personnel Command.

Population Served
