New Orleans NAS JRB

As one of only two joint reserve bases in the country, the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base (NAS JRB) New Orleans has been a long-standing neighbor in the Upper Plaquemines Parish community of Belle Chasse since 1957. The original 515 acre site was called Alvin Callender Field, used by the Navy in the 1940’s as an outlying field for the NAS New Orleans. Today, the 4,900 acre base is home to ten separate command units supporting services for the Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard, and Louisiana Air National Guard. With a total workforce of over 9,500 personnel and a salary influence of over $400 million, the Base’s impact on the regional economy is significant.
