Eastern Sea

Eastern Sea Frontier

Eastern Sea Frontier was located at 90 Church Street in Lower Manhattan and was responsible for the coastal waters from Canada to Jacksonville, Florida. The commander of the Eastern Sea Frontier, until the closing months of 1943, was Vice Admiral Adolphus Andrews whose operational orders could only be appealed to Admiral King. This frontier was the “parent” of all frontiers, and its authority extended beyond its own frontier.

Eastern Sea Frontier was designated in official records:

  • EASTSEAFRON – Eastern Sea Frontier.
  • COMEASTSEAFRON – Commander, Eastern Sea Frontier.
