Abstract:
The city of Bremerton located on Puget Sound in the state of Washington, some twenty miles west of Seattle. The Puget Sound Navy Yard is located at Bremerton and is the one and only industry of the city. The Navy Yard employs on an average between 2,500 and 3,000 men and Bremerton with its adjacent city, Charleston, have a population of approximately 10,000 people. The city of Bremerton is called the "Home of the Pacific Fleet" because all the battleships on the Pacific are repaired and overhauled at the Puget Sound Yard.
