VFA-25

"Fist of the Fleet!"

Welcome to the official website of Strike Fighter Squadron Two Five!

VFA-25 is assigned to Carrier Air Wing NINE. While ashore, VFA-25 is located on the Operations side of NAS Lemoore in Hangar 2 Mod 2. NAS Lemoore is situated in the middle of California's San Joaquin Valley, a vast agricultural area in the center of the state. The surrounding community is made up of several small towns; Riverdale, Lemoore, and Hanford are the closest. Although the area is sparsely populated, the towns and their people are friendly and very accommodating to Navy personnel.

VISION: For over seventy years Strike Fighter Squadron TWO FIVE (VFA-25) has existed to defend our great nation. VFA-25 is a fighting outfit and has rightly earned the moniker "The FIST of the FLEET": From combat operations in World War II, Korea, Vietnam and most recently the Middle East, to peace keeping and presence operationsthroughout the Cold War. The Fist provides America with the unique capability of flying combat jets from large-deck aircraft carriers as part of the magnificent enterprise known as Naval Aviation.
