Welcome Aboard

As the commanding officer, I would like to personally extend a hearty "Welcome Aboard" and convey how pleased I am that you are joining the Seahawks.  I am certain you will find your tour here challenging, rewarding, and enjoyable.
The squadron is currently assigned to Commander, Carrier Air Wing ONE (CVW-1) flying the newest airborne command & control​​​​​​​ platform: the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye.  You will find we are highly motivated and I believe the finest squadron in all of naval aviation.  We look forward to the expertise you will bring to the Seahawks.

Your sponsor will be available if you have any questions about the squadron during your transfer.  You may contact him or her via e-mail.
If you have a spouse, her or his questions can be answered by our command ombudsman or our command master chief.

To find out more about the Seahawks, please continue to browse our homepage, and the following website will assist you with relocation information (i.e., local community, education, employment, housing, and child and teen services, etc): Military HOMEFRONT.

Again, "Welcome Aboard!"  I look forward to having you on the team.  If you have any sponsor difficulties, please contact the command master chief.
