Welcome to the Blue Blasters of VFA-34. If you are a new check-in please call the duty phone at 757-433-9010. Checking in to a new command can be an intimidating and difficult experience. If you have received orders to VFA-34 you should receive a welcome aboard message and the contact information of your command sponsor. Your sponsor is the key to a successful check-in. Contact them as soon as possible.
If the squadron is away from NAS Oceana and the duty office cannot be contacted check in to TPU Norfolk, located in Building J-50 at 1683 Gilbert Street, Naval Station Norfolk. The TPU Quarterdeck phone number is (757) 444-1640. Upon checking into TPU arrangements will be made to bring you to the squadron's current location.
