Welcome to The Second Naval District
Gryphon Fleet

Second Fleet was established in 2011 through Naval Directive 11FB-03, which appointed Antonio Lopes to the position of Commanding Officer of Second Fleet and Second Naval District and brevetted him to the rank of Rear Admiral of the Red.

Operations commenced on 30 August, 2011 with the commissioning of the fleet’s first ship, HMS Merlin (CA-270) in Minneapolis, founded and commanded by then – Captain j.g. John Neitz. 30 August is still observed annually as “Gryphon Fleet Day,” and HMS Merlin bears the title “First in Second Fleet.”

Gryphon Fleet is currently commanded by Vice Admiral of the Red John Neitz, and has expanded to 22 hyper-capable ships, and 4 LACs.
