Wait for it 🔥

Have you ever heard of a Hush House? One of only nine Navy Aircraft Acoustical Enclosure’s in the United States, NAS Oceana’s Hush House operates year-round to help the squadrons keep their jets running. An engineering marvel, the facility is specially designed to absorb the noise of a jet engine turning at full power, while pulling in a massive amount of cool air to keep the jet running.

Today, the Hush House hosted an F/A-18 Super Hornet from VFA-106, the “Gladiators.” In the cockpit is AD1 Kevin Smith, turning up the heat 🔥

Faces of Oceana

“Growing up, I would always look at the women and men, in uniform, and I said to myself ‘I want to wear that uniform. I want to be able to travel and give back to my country,’” said Culinary Specialist 2nd Class Sharell Steverson, from Virginia Beach, Virginia, the record’s keeper for the Hornet’s Nest Galley onboard Naval Air Station Oceana.
Before arriving at NAS Oceana, she was stationed aboard USS Nimitz (CVN-68) and assigned to Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 134, the “Garudas.” Her favorite thing about her naval career are the people she has met along the way.
“The opportunity to meet new people from all over the world, all with different backgrounds and experiences, is absolutely my favorite part of being in the Navy."
Steverson joined the Navy six years ago and has experienced her dream of traveling while serving her country. She also has advice for junior sailors who may be new to their naval career.
“I think it’s important for junior sailors to branch out from their comfort zone. Utilize the diverse array of programs that the Navy offers to you, and do not be afraid to use your chain of command to assist you in achieving your goals. They are there to help you be the best you can be.”

Faces of Oceana

Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Handling) 1st Class Jeffrey Vernocke, from Port Huron, Michigan is assigned to the air operations department onboard Naval Air Station Oceana.

“When I joined, I wanted to be a part of something bigger than my small hometown,” said Vernocke, whose hometown borders Canada along the shores of Lake Huron. “There is nothing bigger than the opportunity to serve your country.”

Vernocke is the leading petty officer for the air operations department. His job plays a crucial role in his department’s mission as he is in charge of leading junior Sailors in carrying out their daily duties and responsibilities in the most effective and efficient ways possible. As the command’s 3M coordinator, he also oversees the maintenance for multiple commands across NAS Oceana.

“My job keeps me busy, but I love the fast paced environment and the opportunity to interact with so many different people on a daily basis.”

What he loves about his job most? The mentorship he is able to provide his junior Sailors as their leading petty officer.

“The best part about my job is the chance to better the lives of those around me. I get to be a mentor to junior enlisted and my fellow peers. I get a chance to mentor and learn from those around, and those interactions are what makes my job special.”

A team from Construction Battalion Maintenance Unit 202 (CBMU-202) installed new LED lighting fixtures at , Hangar 111. The project, overseen by Public Works Department (PWD) Oceana, includes replacement of all lighting throughout the hangar with new vapor-tight LED fixtures. The project significantly improves visibility within Hangar 111, and reduces maintenance lighting and requisite aircraft movement support. This effort by CBMU-202 is a great example of PWD / Seabee alignment to provide crucial expedited and reduced cost support to the Fleet!

2023 marks a significant milestone in navy history and in : 50 Years of Women Flying in the Navy. In 1973 the first eight women began flight school at NAS Pensacola, and one year later six of those women, known as “The First Six”, earned their . Today, our women Naval Aviators project power from the sea in every type, model, and series aircraft. They fly and fight in all strike missions, hunt submarines, protect the integrity of our nuclear triad, supply essential cargo and personnel to every corner of the globe, and rescue those in distress at sea and ashore. They command aircraft carriers, carrier air wings, squadrons, and missions to space. In 2023, we reflect on our Naval Aviation history and pay tribute to all our women naval aviators - The First Six, and all those who have come after them. Our nation and our navy is stronger because of their service!
