A Bothell High School graduate and Bothell native is serving in the U.S. Navy with Commander Strike Fighter Wing, U.S. Pacific Fleet (CSFWP).

Lt. Sean Krueger works as a pilot and operates out of Naval Air Station (NAS) Lemoore in California.

Krueger is responsible for flying jets and performing weapons and tactics officer duties.

“I like the opportunity I get to fly,” Krueger said. “My favorite part of flying is conduction operations with Navy ships.”

“Lemoore has been home to the Navy’s west coast strike fighter community since 1980, when strike fighter squadron VFA-125 was the first squadron established to train Navy and Marine Corps aviators in the F/A-18 Hornet,” said Vice Adm. Mike Shoemaker, Naval Air Forces commander.

The strike fighter wing, headquartered at NAS Lemoore, ensures that each squadron is fully combat-ready to conduct carrier-based, all-weather, attack, fighter and support missions for the Pacific Fleet.

“I enjoy the bond with the people I work with on a daily basis,” Krueger said.

With the CSFWP consisting of more than 20 squadrons, highly specialized jobs range from training new aviators to maintaining airframes and engines, to handling and flying aircraft.

“I’m extremely proud of the people I work with and take pride in serving my country,” Krueger said.
