Welcome to Tri-State Base

Welcome to the new design of the Tri-State Base website. We have made the site more user-friendly and responsive to the different media that is available for viewing, like cellphones and tablets. This design also gives more flexibility to add new features.

A huge thank you goes out to our National Artist, Tom Denton, for allowing us to use some of his exquisite paintings in the active header graphic above. Thanks also goes to the Tri-State membership for all the support they have given to ensure an accurate membership database.

We hope you find the new look refreshing and easy to navigate, and look forward to your comments on ways we can improve the user experience and ensure the desired content is available and up-to-date.

We would also hope that you find our website as friendly as our base. What is a base? It is the people who make it up. From the leadership to the members, we are all "Brothers of the Phin" who band together, not only to just be part of a group, but to be part of a family. If you qualified on Submarines, you know the special bond you share, and here, continue to share. So, if you are in our area and want to see what we are all about, come on, kick the tires and get in behind the wheel for a non-committal run. Bring your wife along. If she wants to join in with our Subvettes group, she is more than welcome.

We look forward to meeting and greeting you, shipmate! Hey, if you are a non-member and qualified submariner, the first lunch is on us. Just introduce yourself and ask where the base commander is and he will make sure that the base picks up your tab. We know you will want to join in as a member.

Fair winds and following seas, Shipmates! Enjoy the site, let us know what you think can be better, and a flash traffic will go out as functions are added.
