Calling Sigonella Home

militarydefenseattorney23.36836Located in Sicily, Italy the Naval Air Station Sigonella is a U.S. Navy base within the NATO Base Sigonella. An Italian Air Force base is on the premise as well. NAS Sigonella is home to a variety of U.S. activities and commands; over 40 at last count. While there is no official title, it is often looked at as the Mediterranean hub for U.S. naval air operations. This base was created in 1959 due to the fact the U.S. needed more space than Malta was able to offer. The NAS Sigonella became the solution. Originally called the Naval Air Facility Sigonella, in the 1980s it was changed to the Naval Air Station. There are two paved airport runways at the base.

For those unfamiliar with Sicily, it is the largest of all the islands in the Mediterranean. It offers opportunities for water activities, beaches, mountains, skiing, historical sightseeing, and plenty more, making for an interesting location to be stationed.

An Important Player

As well the Special Purpose Marine Air Ground Task Force-Crisis Response unit was created in 2013, a way to be close to Libya should a response be needed. There are U.S. military personnel and their families based here and there are Italian civilian workers, which helps to add jobs to the local economy. It is home to roughly 4,000 military personnel and families.

The base is divided up into two different sections. These are the NAS 1 and the NAS II. NAS I is home to the Navy Exchange and Commissary, homes, the school, and various officers’ stations, it was also the original base. Meanwhile NAS II features the rest of the tenant commands, operations, and the two runways found at the base. Only the Naval Support Activity Bahrain is bigger when it comes to security command.
