It has been a great new year for VFA-25, hitting the ground running in 2017. We continue to put safe aircraft in the air on a daily basis, while still completing all of our training requirements, running our programs, and exercising some of the best maintenance practices on the flight line. Not only are we capable of keeping up with our own requirements, but we were able to lend a significant hand to a sister squadron here in Lemoore while repairing one of its aircraft. We are excited to work hard during the day and enjoy our family time while off-duty. It's a fantastic time to be a Fist!

During the first week of January 2017 VFA-25 supported an Air National Guard unit based out of Camp Murray, WA. VFA-25 provided multiple sortie coverage on a daily basis to maximize the training gained. Highlighting the training was a section employing Laser Guided Training Rounds (LGTR) on a moving target.
