A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF JACKSONVILLE NAVAL AIR STATION
The Jacksonville Naval Air Station or NAS Jax is located south of Jacksonville, Florida. This base is located in Duval County alongside the Mayport Naval Station. The station was originally commissioned in 1917 when it was known as Camp Joseph E. Johnston. It was much later in 1940, that the Naval Air Station Jacksonville was commissioned here. This station is part of the Navy Complex here that also includes the Mayport air station and NAS Cecil Field.
Since 1973, the station has been a critical force in anti submarine warfare. This came about after the Helicopter Antisubmarine Wing One was assigned here.
Today, NAS Jax is a very popular Navy station and it has grown into the most requested duty station for Naval Aviation officers and sailors. The NAS Jax is now considered a premier air and industrial base. Its latest pride and joy is the Navy’s brand new P-8A aircraft, the first operational squadron of which is now deployed at this air station.
NAS JAX IN THE NEWS
After the Navy yard shootout, attention has been focused on security breaches across military and Navy establishments. NAS Jax has also come under heavy scrutiny especially since it uses the same background check program, Rapid gate, as Washington Navy Yard does. Security concerns are prompting the officials to impose stringent regulations and to take a serious view of even minor breaches of Navy protocol. In addition, the recent crackdown on sexual assault and harassment cases in defense establishments has increased the risk that a serviceman or woman may be accused of misdemeanors.
