Where to Report
Upon arrival in VFA-192, report (in the uniform of the day) to Hangar 3 Mod 3 on the Operations side of Naval Air Station Lemoore which is a five-mile drive north of the main base.
If the squadron is away from homeport when you arrive, report to Transient Personnel Detachment (TPD). TPD is located on the 2nd deck of Building 700 which is located directly opposite of Personnel Support Detachment with the flag staff just to the right as you enter Naval Air Station Lemoore. TPD will provide you with assistance checking in along with further transportation to the squadron as required. Remaining in contact with your assigned sponsor before and during your PCS into NAS Lemoore and VFA-192 is critical in obtaining information concerning scheduled movements.
You must report on or before your Estimated Date of Arrival (EDA) as indicated on your orders. If a "Report NLT" (or No Later Than) date appears on your orders, you must report by that date. Failure to report for duty at the appropriate time can result in non-judicial punishment. You must also pay attention the "Report No Earlier Than (NET)" statement. For funding reasons, you cannot report earlier than the day listed. If you do, the Navy is not obligated to reimburse you for your lodging and food expenses.
Upon reporting, you are required to have in your possession:
1. Service record.
2. Original PCS orders, required sea-duty screening documentation, and transfer eval/fitrep.
3. All associated itineraries if the government provided transportation for you and/or your dependents.
4. All lodging receipts while in transit during any authorized stops, I.E., TAD. (mandatory turn-in for reimbursement).
5. Medical/Dental records.
6. Most importantly, a full sea-bag. VFA-192 is a deployable squadron and operational commitments require each service member to be ready when the need arises.
Please contact your sponsor in advance to let us know what your travel intentions are. We are here to assist you!
