Hard drives are erased using the Department of Defense's DoD 5220.22-M standard, or if necessary, hard drives are physically destroyed. We'll do whatever it takes to ensure your company data does not fall into the wrong hands.

Norfolk: A City with Strategic Military History

Within the border of the U.S. state of Virginia, the city of Norfolk can be found. Norfolk is an independent city because it is not part of any particular county. Among the 41 independent cities in the whole U.S., the Commonwealth of Virginia has 38 within its borders, including Norfolk. Geographically, the city of Norfolk can be located in the Hampton Roads Metropolitan Area, specifically at the region’s center. In the whole state, Norfolk occupies the southeastern portion, near the confluence of the Chesapeake Bay and the Elizabeth River. The city’s borders include the Elizabeth River to the west, the Chesapeake Bay to the north and south, and the Virginia Beach to the east.

According to the United States Census Bureau, Norfolk is home to a population of 246, 392 citizens as of the year 2013. Currently, it ranks the 2nd most populous city in the state and 78th most populous city in the country.

The metropolitan area consists of 7 counties and 9 cities, including Hampton, Norfolk, Williamsburg, Portsmouth, Suffolk and Chesapeake among others.

Even if Norfolk is sometimes overshadowed by Virginia Beach in a couple of occasions, the city still has an impressive history that appeals to some American locals and foreign tourists. For people who are interested in knowing more about the United States’ military history, the city of Norfolk is a good place to visit. As a major military center, there are a couple of regional military installations within the city’s borders. The city of Norfolk is home to the world’s largest Naval Base called the Naval Station Norfolk. Established in 1917, the base station of the U.S. Navy occupies the U.S. Fleet forces Command. Furthermore, the station supports 14 piers, 75 ships, 11 aircraft hangars and 134 aircrafts. Aside from the Naval Station Norfolk, the city is home to two Strategic Command Headquarters of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization or commonly called as the NATO.

Aside from its strategic military history, the city of Norfolk is also known as a major trade artery. Its location at the Chesapeake Bay’s mouth makes it a good location for the import and export of cargo. The port of Norfolk accepts goods from the Mid- West, Mid- Atlantic and even from international waters.
