Naval Air Station Moffett Field

The original station was commissioned on 12 April 1933 and dedicated NAS Sunnyvale after the death of Rear Admiral William A. Moffett, who is credited with the creation of the airfield, in the loss of the USS Akron on 4 April 1933. The Hangars #1, #2, and #3, and the adjacent Shenandoah Plaza are collectively designated as a National Historic District listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

My father was stationed on the DD155 USS Cole assissting at the USS Akron dirigible crash site, he recovered Admiral Moffett's sleeping bag. The last I heard it was in the attic at my grand parents house in Pennsylvania, that was several years ago.

Station at  Nas Supply Department Aug 87-Jan 90.(AK3)   Loved Moffett and all the people I met there.  I feel it was probably my best duty station.  I love the P3 community-- really felt like family, I miss those days.
