On March 18, 2021, CDR Scott Rose relieved CDR Juston Kuch as our commanding officer. Normally, a change of command would follow Navy tradition, with a ceremony commensurate to the level of customs and courtesies required. In accordance with CDC guidelines about group gatherings, a smaller ceremony was held in the hangar bay.

Fair winds and following seas to CDR Kuch as he moves on to his next tour and congratulations CDR Rose!

Higher education has numerous benefits, and it paid off big time for YN2(AW/SW) Diondria Reed. Her education points from her degree were just enough to push her over the quota for YN2 this cycle, and as a result was frocked this morning by the commanding officer. Congratulations YN2!

CDC

US Surgeon General’s quick face covering video...

While the White House 30 Day Stay At Home guidance remains our most powerful weapon against COVID-19, CDC’s recommendation to wear a cloth face covering may help protect the most vulnerable. Watch U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams make a face covering in a few easy steps.

Good afternoon Blasters.This just released a few hours ago on Navy HR.  More guidance to come.

Good afternoon Blasters.

This just released a few hours ago on Navy HR. More guidance to come.

MEMORANDUM FOR CHIEF MANAGEMENT OFFICER OF THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE

SUBJECT: Department of Defense Guidance on the Use of Cloth Face Coverings

The Department of Defense (DoD) is committed to taking every precaution to ensure the health and wellbeing of our Service members, DoD civilian employees, families, and the Nation in response to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

DoD supports, and will continue to implement, all measures necessary to mitigate risks to the spread of the disease,
consistent with the Department's priorities to protect our people, safeguard our national security capabilities, and support the government's whole-of-nation response.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. Military personnel, DoD civilian employees, their family members, and DoD contractors are strongly encouraged to follow CDC guidelines on the use of cloth face coverings in public settings or where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.

Effective immediately, to the extent practical, all individuals on DoD property, installations, and facilities will wear cloth face coverings when they cannot maintain six feet of social distance in public areas or work centers (this does not include in a Service member's or Service family member's personal residence on a military installation). This includes all:

• Military Personnel

• DoD Civilian Employees
• Family Members
• DoD Contractors
• All other individuals on DoD property, installations, and facilities

Exceptions to this requirement may be approved by local commanders or supervisors, and then submitted up the chain of command for situational awareness. Security checkpoints
may require the lowering of face covers to verify identification.
The Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness will issue updated force health protection guidance on DoD implementation. The Military Departments will issue
guidance on wear for Service members. As an interim measure, all individuals are encouraged to fashion face coverings from household items or common materials, such as clean T-shirts or other clean cloths that can cover the nose and mouth area. Medical personal protective equipment such as N95 respirators or surgical masks will not be issued for this purpose as these will be reserved for the appropriate personnel.

The Department will continue to implement force protective measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 to our total force and their families, and the American people. The latest
DoD policies can be found at https://www.defense.gov/Explore/Spotlight/Coronavirus.

Quonset Point Rhode Island. I took this picture of a VA-34 INTRUDER on 28 October 2019. This A-6 was at the aviation museum there but sadly the museum had to close due to a lack of funds.

My hangar mate flew A6-E's with the Blue Blasters 84 to 88. Wants to know if PAO can send stickers?
Blasters looked good landing in Philly.

Good to see Legacies over Philadelphia!
OMG, I remember back when y'all were A-6's. Do you all still use the Blue Blaster 800 Codes? Code 804 was WTF. That's the only one I remember because it was used so much on the flight deck radios.
Blaster Families, I wanted to provide you with the latest information regarding VFA-34’s status and plan in response to Hurricane Florence. This morning, we made the decision to plus up our early return airlift, prioritizing those Sailors who live in high risk flood prone areas and/or those folks who have dependents that need their immediate assistance in preparation for the storm. The remainder of the squadron will continue to stay in Fallon until the storm passes and we are able to get an airlift back home. We anticipate that this might occur Monday of next week. For all those back in Virginia Beach, please continue to plan ahead with regards to sheltering in place or, if need be, following a mandatory evacuation order. I understand how stressful this is on every member of the Blaster family, and we are working diligently to ensure everyone’s safety throughout. Please continue to pass any feedback you have to us and we will work to address it. I will continue to pass updated information as it becomes available. Thank you kindly for your time and patience. Very Respectfully, W.M. Mathis Commanding Officer Strike Fighter Squadron 34
Blaster Families- Hurricane Florence continues to move westward with the potential to impact Virgina Beach towards the end of this week. We are closely monitoring the storm and will continue to update you as soon as possible with whatever information we can provide. Expect another update from me on Tuesday morning. Now is the time to prepare - make a kit, get a plan, and stay informed. The following websites are great sources for information on your homes' flood zone and steps that you should be taking NOW to prepare. https://www.knowyourzoneva.org https://www.ready.gov/hurricanes https://www.va.emergency.gov If there are any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call our Duty phone at NAS Fallon (775) 426-2487. Very Respectfull, W.M. Mathis Commanding Officer Strike Fighter Squadron 34

From the bottom my heart I want to thank every Blue Blaster. The tiger cruise was a once in a lifetime experience for me. If I needed help they help me. If I had a question and they did not know the question they found an answer. Thank you all for yawls hospitality. Welcome home blue blasters. Enjoy your time off. Sincerely MR. LOHR
