Everett is a city on the northeast coast of Puget Sound. It was a significant port and a center for lumber and shingle production.

Paine Field (122.28W 47.91N) was located nearby. At the time war broke out in the Pacific, Paine Field based 54 Interceptor Group with 75 P-39. The Navy funded the establishment in 1942 of a shipyard here under Everett-Pacific Shipbuliding & Dry Dock Company. This yard constructed smaller ships such as net tenders, tugs, and floating dry docks.
