Summary

Significance: The Oakland Naval Supply center possesses significance as one of the primary supply center for operations in the Pacific Theater of World War II. During the period 194-1950, the supply center was one of two provisions depots for the entire west coast. Timely deliveries to the Pacific fleet were essential to the war effort. One of the major military operations of the century, World War II could not have been a success for the Allied Powers without the outstanding efforts by the Naval Supply Centers across the country.
