Actually, Everett has a CVN stationed there also. Further, the
Bremerton is the only base on the West Coast which can work on the CVN's
power plants. The big problem here is that most of the CVN's attack
fighters are based in California when not out to sea. I also believe
there is an Air Force base near Spokane. I am not sure if your intent
include eastern Washington into Cascadia or not. To listen to some of
on the other side of the mountains, you would think that they live in a
different state now.

Yup, Bangor has 8 SSBN's and 2 SSGN's. Everett has 3
FFG's and 2 DDG's, Bremerton a CVN and 4 AOE's, and
NAS Whidbey has 19 squadrons, including prowlers,
Orions, and a bunch of supply stuff. Light on
fighters, though both WA and OR have AFR ang ANG
squadrons, plus 2 Active Duty AFB's (Including
Fairchild, home to the USAF's SERE school).
