Welcome to Tri-State Base

Welcome to the Tri-State Base website. We hope you will 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 the 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, com on in, kick the tires and get behind the wheel for a noncommittal run. Check the events calendar for meeting dates and locations.

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

We look forward to meeting and greeting you at one of our monthly meetings shipmate! If you are a non-member and a qualified submariner and would like to join, we will wave your base dues for the first year. All you have to pay is the national dues. Bring your wife along too. If she wants to join in with our Subvettes group, she is more than welcome.

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.
