Naval Air Station Lemoore

Lemoore Our Military NAS Lemoore

 

NAVAL AIR STATION LEMOORE

Today, as the West Coast master jet base for the U.S. Navy, Naval Air Station Lemoore provides the infrastructure, support and services that enable Commander, Strike Fighter Wing Pacific squadrons to conduct operations in support of national tasking. NAS Lemoore was established in 1961 to support the U.S. Navy’s Pacific Fleet.

NAS Lemoore is in California’s Central Valley. This rich agricultural area, with a small hometown atmosphere, is surrounded by California’s playgrounds: Los Angeles, San Francisco, the Sierra Mountains and the Pacific Ocean.

NAS Lemoore is home to Strike Fighter Wing Pacific, which supports the West Coast strike fighter community. Other organizations at the station include four carrier air wings, Fleet Readiness Center West, Strike Fighter Weapons School Pacific, an aviation survival training center and the Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training Unit Lemoore. For more information about units at NAS Lemoore, visit its website at www.cnic.navy.mil/lemoore.

Population

The station has approximately 6,500 military personnel, 2,000 civilians, 10,900 family members, 8,700 retirees and family members, 23,000 students and transients, and 825 reservists.

History

NAS Lemoore Our Military History

 

In 1954, the Navy searched Central California for land to build a master jet air station — one with congestion-free air space. Lemoore was chosen because of its central location, good weather for flying and nearby accommodations.

The air station was commissioned July 8, 1961, with Capt. Howard M. Avery, newly appointed commanding officer, presiding over the opening ceremonies. More than $100 million was invested to bring the station to operational status.

In July 1998, NAS Lemoore was selected as the West Coast site for the Navy’s newest strike fighter aircraft, the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet. This action brought about 92 additional aircraft, 1,850 additional active-duty personnel and 3,000 family members to NAS Lemoore, and several associated facility additions or improvements.

The Navy also brought four new fleet squadrons to NAS Lemoore from 2001 to 2004. Additional military staffing was required at Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Department, Strike Fighter Weapons School Pacific and the Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training Unit Lemoore to support this effort. Originally, the officer in charge of construction for building the base was Cmdr. Dennis K. Culp, who was the first naval officer in Lemoore.

Today, as the West Coast master jet base for the U.S. Navy, NAS Lemoore provides the infrastructure, support and services that enable Strike Fighter Wing Pacific squadrons to conduct operations in support of national tasking.

Organizations

NAS Lemoore Our Military Organizations

 

STRIKE FIGHTER WING PACIFIC

Strike Fighter Wing Pacific supports the West Coast strike fighter community. In fact, the sign as you enter Reeves Field clearly states: to train, maintain, man and equip F/A-18 Hornet and F-35 Joint Strike Fighter squadrons in support of the U.S. Pacific Fleet. The wing, headquartered at NAS Lemoore, ensures that each strike fighter squadron homeported at the air station is fully combat-ready to conduct carrier-based, all-weather, attack, fighter and support missions for the Pacific Fleet.

CARRIER AIR WINGS

Four carrier air wings are stationed at NAS Lemoore.

Carrier Air Wing 2 prepares and provides combat-ready airborne forces for on-call surge or scheduled deployed operations in support of Carl Vinson Strike Group Commander objectives.

Carrier Air Wing 9 is tasked with coordinating offensive and defensive air operations, attacking air, surface and subsurface targets afloat and ashore. The wing also supports other forces by:

  • Conducting all-weather offensive air-to-surface attacks.
  • Intercepting and destroying enemy aircraft and missiles in all weather conditions to establish and maintain local air superiority.
  • Detecting, localizing and destroying enemy ships and submarines in all weather conditions to establish and maintain local sea control.
  • Providing aerial photographic, sighting and electronic intelligence for naval and joint operations.
  • Providing airborne early warning service to fleet forces and shore warning nets under all weather conditions.
  • Providing airborne electronic countermeasures.
  • Conducting in-flight refueling operations to extend the range and endurance of air wing aircraft.
  • Performing all-weather mining operations.
  • Conducting search-and-rescue operations.


Carrier Air Wing 11 delivers “speed and violence” and is currently assigned to USS Nimitz (CVN 68), homeported at Naval Station Everett, Washington. When not embarked to the Nimitz, the wing’s headquarters is at NAS Lemoore.

Carrier Air Wing 17 proudly serves at the “tip of the spear,” deploying aboard USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) and supporting 10 carrier air wing squadrons while serving at the forefront of the global war on terrorism.

FLEET READINESS CENTER WEST

Fleet Readiness Center West provides the highest quality intermediate and depot level aviation maintenance, component repair and logistics support to the fleet, both locally and around the world, in the fastest, safest, most cost-efficient manner possible. Fleet Readiness Center West enhances fleet readiness and combat capability for war fighters.

The command consists of more than 1,600 dedicated personnel comprised of active-duty and reserve sailors and Marines, civil service employees and supporting contractors.

Other aviation maintenance activities belonging to the FRCW organization structure are at NAS Fallon, Nevada; Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake, California; and the Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth, Texas.

STRIKE FIGHTER WEAPONS SCHOOL PACIFIC

From its inception in 1973 until today, the mission of the Strike Fighter Weapons School Pacific has expanded from the simple, yet critical task of teaching ordnance-loading procedures to providing formal, standardized, graduate-level training through curricula covering every aspect of F/A-18 weapons employment. The school is dedicated to guaranteeing the combat readiness of the strike fighter community by providing the best possible training in mission planning, tactics, weapons systems and ordnance handling to ensure every squadron is prepared to enter any combat contingency and win.

Thirty weapons and tactics courses for strike fighter aircraft are taught on a continuing basis to fleet squadrons, reserve squadrons and naval air stations. The amount of ordnance uploaded in courses offered at the school totals more than 2.5 million pounds annually.

AVIATION SURVIVAL TRAINING CENTER LEMOORE

The Aviation Survival Training Center Lemoore is a department of the Navy Medicine Operational Training Center of Pensacola, Florida. The center’s mission is to maximize the performance and survivability of Navy and Marine Corps aircrew under the rigorous conditions of naval aviation. That mission is accomplished through the Naval Aviation Survival Training Program. Through didactic classroom or squadron lectures, simulator devices and a curriculum that emphasizes hands-on exposure to survival skills, the center offers the best survival training available to the fleet.

CENTER FOR NAVAL AVIATION TECHNICAL TRAINING UNIT LEMOORE

The Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training Unit Lemoore’s mission is to produce sailors and Marines with the necessary FA-18 knowledge, skills and abilities to function at the highest technical standards in naval aviation maintenance. The unit trains and supplies the fleet with trained aviation maintenance technicians so commands can perform their primary mission ashore, at sea and in combat.

HEALTH CARE

937 Franklin Ave.

Central Appointments..................559-998-0889

Pharmacy..........................559-998-4499/4708

www.med.navy.mil/sites/nhlem

Naval Health Clinic Lemoore (formerly Naval Hospital Lemoore) provides comprehensive, patient-centered health care. Facilities are staffed with some of the Navy’s most highly trained professionals who are committed to service excellence. Services include deployment health, general surgery, immunizations, mental health, OB-GYN, occupational health, optometry, orthopedics, physical therapy, radiology, urgent care and more.

Dental care is available to active-duty military only. Family members of active-duty personnel are encouraged to use the TRICARE Dental Program. Program information is available by visiting www.tricare.mil/CoveredServices/Dental/TDP.

TRICARE

TRICARE is the health care program for active-duty and retired service members, their families and survivors. TRICARE provides health plans, prescriptions, dental plans and other special health programs to its beneficiaries. TRICARE’s mission is to enhance the Department of Defense and the nation’s security by providing health support for the full range of military operations and sustaining the health of all those entrusted to their care.

TRICARE offers a range of health care plans. TRICARE Prime is the mandatory health care option for active-duty service members. Family members of active-duty service members, retired service members and their families may also use this option. If you use TRICARE Prime, you are assigned a primary care manager at a military or network provider who delivers most of your care. If you need care your PCM cannot provide, you are referred to specialist. Active-duty service members and their families pay nothing out of pocket for this option; however, there is less freedom to choose your own provider. On Jan. 1, 2018, TRICARE Standard and Extra were combined into a new plan, TRICARE Select. Select is a standardized fee-for-service plan available to family members of active-duty service members, retired service members and their families. After you enroll in TRICARE Select, you may schedule an appointment with any TRICARE-authorized provider. Referrals not required, but you may need prior authorization from your regional contractor for some services. You will pay a copay or cost share based on the type of care and provider you see. Costs for Select vary, but you will pay an annual deductible as well as a percentage of covered services. Non-network providers may charge up to 15 percent more than the TRICARE allowable charge; you’re responsible for these extra charges. TRICARE also offers plans for remote and overseas locations, reserve military members, young adults who are no longer covered under regular TRICARE coverage and other scenarios.

TRICARE coverage is completely portable so it moves with you when you relocate. Follow these simple steps to ensure you have no break in coverage when you move:

  • Do not cancel your TRICARE Prime enrollment option before you move.
  • Update your personal information in DEERS immediately when you arrive at your new location.
  • Select a new primary care manager.

If you’re already using TRICARE Select, moving is easy. When you arrive at your new location, update your personal information in DEERS. Then find TRICARE-authorized providers in your new area. Remember, you may have a new regional contractor and claims filing address.

TRICARE’s online tools can help you find and compare plans that you are qualified to use. Beginning in 2019, however, TRICARE will allow you to switch between plans only if you have a “qualifying life event” such as the birth of a baby or a move. For a complete description of the types of coverage programs and regions, visit www.tricare.mil. For more information about recent changes to TRICARE, visit https://tricare.mil/changes.
