Not a facility, unit, station, city.....That's quite mysterious Bearmon, unless it's a name of a sailor or technician.

For the Navy patch collectors, this one is the rare fish in the sea.....


N.A.I.T.F. POINT PINOS - (June 1954 to November 1961) Naval Air Intercept Training Facility, Point Pinos, California was established at the extreme tip of pine-covered Monterey Peninsula, overlooking the Pacific at NAF Monterey, also the grounds of the US Naval Post Graduate School.


"A particularly well named outfit is the Naval Air Intercept Training Facility, Point Pinos, Calif. Pinos is Spanish for pines. That’s appropriate, too, for the facility’s radar station is at the extreme tip of pine-covered Monterey Peninsula, overlooking the Pacific. As for the functional part of the name, that’s just what the facility does. Its main role is to train pilots and air controllers in the latest techniques of radar-controlled intercepts. (An intercept in this case means vectoring a fighter plane to a target plane.) In another role the facility assists carriers operating off the northern California coast by tracking their aircraft and relaying the plane’s flight plans to interested shoreside officials." All Hands magazine, March 1961

NAMRA NAPLES - Naval Air Mediterranean Repair Activity


Commander Francis C. “Luke” Lukenbill became the first Commanding Officer of the newly established U. S. Naval Air Mediterranean Repair Activity (NAMRA) on 28 September 2001. The new stand-alone Repair Activity’s mission is to provide emergent, high quality, Depot-level structural repair to U.S. Navy and Marine Corps aircraft in the European and NAVCENT theaters with the ultimate degree of customer service. The command, located at the Naval Support Activity Capodichino, Naples, Italy, was previously a detachment of the U. S. Naval Air Pacific Repair Activity (NAPRA) Atsugi, Japan and now begins its maiden venture as its own command. NAMRA continues half century tradition of outstanding service to the Fleet in theater. As a Naval Air Systems Command entity, NAMRA reports directly to RDML Stephen C. Heilman, AIR 6.0, Deputy Director for Aviation Depots.


NAMRA originated nearly 50 years ago as a department of the Commander, Fleet Air Mediterranean (COMFAIRMED). At that time, COMFAIRMED identified the need for a Depot-level Maintenance presence in theater to maintain Navy and Marine Corps aviation in Europe, the Mediterranean, the Middle East, and North Africa. Originally designated as the Fleet Air Mediterranean Repair Activity (FAMRA), it was responsible for in-theater Depot-level In-Service Repair (ISR), Standard Depot Level Maintenance (SDLM), and Aircraft Service Period Adjustment (ASPA) inspections.

NAVFAC PACIFIC BEACH, WA


Naval Facility Pacific Beach

May 1958 - September 1987


Naval Facility Pacific Beach, Washington was commissioned as a shore activity on 14 May 1958. The Commanding Officer’s house was built on the site of the once-famous Pacific Beach Hotel, the Northwest’s most romantic “Honeymoon” Hotel in the early 1900s. With outbreak of World War II, the Navy and the Air Force moved in and used the site on and off as a regional headquarters, gunners school, radar station and, finally as a Naval Facility.


Naval Facility Pacific Beach had an allowance of 12 officers, 115 enlisted and 15 civilians. After twenty-nine years in a fully operational status, NAVFAC Pacific Beach was remoted to NOPF Whidbey Island and decommissioned 1 September 1987.
