Lemoore, CA-- A Rancho Cucamonga High School graduate and Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. native is serving in the U.S. Navy with Commander Strike Fighter Wing, U.S. Pacific Fleet (CSFWP).
Petty Officer 3rd Class Edwin Seas works as a logistics specialist and operates out of Naval Air Station (NAS) Lemoore, California.
Seas is responsible for logistics clerk duties for the squadron.
“I enjoy the working my fellow Sailors and it's a good work environment,” Seas said. “Everyone is committed to the mission and works toward a common goal.”
“Lemoore has been home to the Navy’s west coast strike fighter community since 1980, when strike fighter squadron VFA-125 was the first squadron established to train Navy and Marine Corps aviators in the F/A-18 Hornet,” said Vice Adm. Mike Shoemaker, Commander, Naval Air Forces.
The strike fighter wing, headquartered at NAS Lemoore, ensures that each squadron is fully combat-ready to conduct carrier-based, all-weather, attack, fighter and support missions for the Pacific Fleet.
“The chain of command cares about its Sailors,” Seas said. “They focus on the personal and professional growth of the Sailors.”
With the CSFWP consisting of more than 20 squadrons, highly specialized jobs range from training new aviators to maintaining airframes and engines, to handling and flying aircraft.
“It's important to be versatile and disciplined,” Seas said. “Things are constantly changing and being flexible helps you be successful.
