Cavite Navy Yard

Cavite Navy Yard was the US Navy's only ship repair facility in the western Pacific before World War II. It was the home of the 16th Naval District and Sangley point was a component of the navy yard. Sangley point was a subordinate command of the Yard and where the naval radio transmitting facility and the naval hospital was located.

At the opening of WW2, the Cavite Navy Yard was destroyed by Japanese bombers. It was abadoned and the Japanese used the yard for small boat repair. In 1945, the yard was retaken by the American forces and recommissioned as the US Navy Cavite Navy Yard.

In 1947, the yard was turned over to the Philippine government and used by the Philippine Navy. It was renamed Naval Base Cavite.
