True enough, but it's a start. I knew Everett had a
CV, but wasn't sure if it was a different one or the
same one transferred over to the new base. And I did
admit a decided lack of naval fighter assets in WA, I
haven't looked into current statistics for fighter
assets in Alaska or Canadian ones in BC or AB. Of
course, if Nevada decides to side with the Northwest
instead of with California (Possible, given general
western animosity towards californication), then
Cascadia ends up with NAS Fallon.

Same in Eastern and Southern Oregon. Different
states, but within one nation would be plausible.
(Southern Oregon/Northern CA becomes Jefferson. Maybe
Split Washington, name the eastern side Palouse, I'll
have to work on a name for Eastern Oregon).
