NAS LEMOORE SCHOLARSHIP
Lemoore Aviator Memorial
Commissioned in 1961, NAS Lemoore remains the “newest” and largest Master Jet Base in the U.S. Navy. NAS Lemoore was built "from the ground up" as a Master Jet Base. With the transfer of NAS Miramar to the United States Marine Corps, NAS Lemoore now hosts the Navy's entire west coast strike fighter capability. Strike Fighter Wing Pacific with its supporting facilities is home ported here. The primary aircraft currently based at NAS Lemoore are the FA-18 Hornet Strike Fighters. However in the past, NAS Lemoore hosted A-1 Skyraiders, A-4 Skyhawks, A-7 Corsair IIs and a myriad of other supporting aircraft.
