There are two naval bases: Brunswick Naval Air Station, which has just closed… and Portsmouth Naval Shipyard… which is technically in New Hampshire… but that’s a subject of debate between the two states.

There’s also the “top secret” SERE base hidden somewhere up in the North Woods, but that’s a training facility for combat pilots who’ve been downed behind enemy lines. Cutler Naval Station is on the coast in Washington County… but it’s just about abandoned. If anything is left, it’s just a radar or some communication equipment, probably staffed part time by civilians or the coast guard.
I’d like to know the original source of the report about the protesters breaking into the nuclear facility.
