  • Station Point Judith Narragansett

Point Judith covers more than 70 miles of coast, including Block island, which also frequently operates as a substation. The current commander of Station Point Judith is Senior Chief Petty Officer Eric Baruzzi Despite being a small station, Point Judith is highly capable of responding to the needs of its area of responsibility. It has several boats at its disposal and is manned by thirty active duty servicemen.
