“This is a light that is going to bring a lot of joy to a lot of people especially considering these challenging times.”

The show starts right here on our page at noon!

The Oceana Air Show kicks off tomorrow, but will have a much different feel. That’s because COVID has forced the orgnaziers to “ground” the crowd.

Today, Sept. 18, marks National POW/MIA Recognition Day.

Please dedicate a few moments today to reflect and honor those who were prisoners of war and those who are still missing in action.

The sacrifices they made will never be forgotten.

Thank you to our local veterans groups and several individuals who brought wreaths and flowers to the Flame of Hope Memorial yesterday morning to honor and pay respect to our POW/MIAs.

'Damn the Torpedoes – Full Speed Ahead': Navy’s First Admiral Was Hispanic Hero

Best known for the battle of Mobile Bay in August 1864, he was in command of a squadron of ships when one of them was struck by a mine (then referred to as “torpedoes”).

Recognizing hesitation from his subordinate commanders, he took the bold and decisive action of placing his flagship Hartford in the lead and giving the order, “Damn the torpedoes, Full speed ahead!” His actions in the face of danger led the flotilla to victory.

David Glasgow Farragut was the U.S. Navy’s first full admiral. At the time of his death in 1870, Farragut had served a total of 59 years in uniform.

For 50 years, ombudsmen have served as unsung heroes who connect families with command leadership.

They take late-night phone calls and send early-morning emails. The text messages never end.

They deliver news that can be joyous and heartbreaking.

They provide a shoulder to cry on and someone to celebrate with.

They serve as counselors and mentors.

They provide resources to families who aren't sure where to find them.

They know the difficulties a long deployment can bring and the hope a care package or note from home can provide.

They know it takes teamwork at sea and at home to make it through life's unexpected challenges.

They make homecomings special.

They are leaders. They are selfless. They are volunteers.

Thank you for all that you do. Thank you for who you are.

Hey, Oceana Air Show fans!

We're working hard to put the finishing touches on the Live Broadcast NAS Oceana Air Show and are getting very excited to get this show off the ground! To remind everyone, the base is not open to the public and the best seats in the house will be on-line to catch all the action and cool interviews, videos and more.

While the final performer line up is still being finalized, we can tell you that we'll have appearances by the F/A-18 Super Hornet, A-10 Thunderbolt 2 (or "Warthog", affectionately), F-22 Raptor and the MV-22 Osprey from the Marine Corps. Skydive Suffolk and Team Fastrax will provide parachute jumps and we'll have flybys by current Navy aircraft as well as historic war birds like the TBM Avenger and the PBY Catalina.

We'll also take a moment to honor and thank our local First Responders and Frontline Workers for all they do for us each and every day with an awesome parade procession led by the Patriot Guard Riders.

Tune in to this page or the Naval Air Station Oceana page at noon on Saturday, September 19th to take in all the action!!!

“Preparedness Empowers You!”
Staying informed throughout an emergency increases your ability to know what to do, when to act, and when it is safe to return. This allows you to keep you and your family safe. There are many resources you can tune into to stay informed and in the ready. Some of these include:

• The Wide Area Alert Network (WAAN)
• General resources including the Internet, television, radio, and social media
• Government websites such as Ready.gov, FEMA.gov, NOAA.gov, and CDC.gov
• Commander, Navy Installations Command Homepage at www.cnic.navy.mil

Aside from these resources, there are also several apps that can assist you in staying informed and prepared. For more information on these apps, visit the Ready Navy Website.

https://www.ready.navy.mil/stay_informed/Preparedness_Applications.html

This is a reminder for all Navy Personnel to remember to ensure that their contact information is current in the Navy Family Accountability and Assessment System (NFAAS). It is imperative as the Navy uses NFAAS to assess, manage, and monitor the recovery process for personnel and their families if they are affected and/or scattered by a wide-spread catastrophic event. NFAAS provides valuable information to all levels of the Navy chain of command, allowing commanders to make strategic decisions which facilitate a return to stability.

Be Ready Navy!

Today, we remember.

We remember how things were before.

We remember the smiles we’ll never see again. The laughter we won’t hear again.

We grieve for those who have lost loved ones because we remember.

We remember your pain because it is our nation’s pain.

We remember New York. We remember Arlington. We remember Shanksville.

We go to work with purpose because we remember. We sacrifice because we remember.

We have the watch.

We remember.

“Disasters don’t wait. Make your plan today!”
Everyone should have a plan for disaster preparedness, individually or as a family. This should include a list of contacts one may need during an emergency. Making an emergency plan reduces stress and can save lives and property. Don’t know where to start? No worries! Go to the Ready Navy website to find more information on making your plan today. You will find forms to assist you, such as a home escape plan worksheet and contact cards.

https://www.ready.navy.mil/make_a_plan/family_plans.html

“Emergencies happen. Take action beforehand and be prepared for any emergency.”
In preparation for an emergency, it’s a good idea to have a kit of emergency supplies. Did you know that it is recommended that your kit contain enough supplies to support each of your family members for 3-5 days? During and after a disaster, emergency management and relief workers could be difficult to reach. As their response time could be affected, you may have to survive on your own for several hours or days. With possible limited access to basic essentials and utilities such as water or electricity, having your emergency kit ready to go can help mitigate stress and take care of you and your family. For more information on what to include in your kit, please visit the Ready Navy website.

NAS Oceana is scheduled to conduct an emergency training exercise at 1 p.m. today in preparation for the 2020 NAS Oceana Virtual Air Show. The exercise will allow Navy personnel and the City of Virginia Beach first-responders to react to a simulated incident onboard the installation. Area residents may see increased activity associated with the exercise, as well as potential smoke on the airfield. Measures will be taken to minimize disruptions to normal base operations. If the exercise is disrupted by inclement weather, today’s training will be canceled. The goal is to enhance the readiness of our response teams and to maintain interoperability between Navy leadership and the City of Virginia Beach.

“The City of Virginia Beach and NAS Oceana have an immensely strong relationship and a long history of partnering together for exercises such as these,” said Capt. John W. Hewitt, NAS Oceana’s Commanding Officer. “Today’s tabletop and field training exercise will enable our respective fire departments, EMS and emergency management personnel to hone their skills through a variety of scenarios. We are very grateful and appreciative for this opportunity which serves to strengthen the bond between the Navy and the City of Virginia Beach.”
