New Arrivals

Congratulations on your orders to the finest P-3 squadron in the Navy, and to the beautiful state of Hawaii!

Our time remaining in Hawaii is short. Soon, we will be moving to Whidbey Island, Washington.
If you are joining us during our time left here, it is critically important that you talk with your sponsor and our Squadron Move Team early and often as you plan and execute your own upcoming move.

This page is designed to help you with your transition to Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii. All of the information below has been provided by the VP-47 Sponsorship Team. If you have any questions, please contact the Sponsor Program Coordinators by email or call using the Contact Us tab. They will provide an information sheet for the upcoming move. From there, the team will advise you about how best to conduct your own move in conjunction with the Squadron's move to its new home in Whidbey Island, Washington. Our Sponsorship Team will assign all new personnel a sponsor who will be in touch with you prior to your arrival at VP-47. Your sponsor's sole goal is to aid in your smooth transition to Hawaii. The primary guide available online at a dod.mil website located here.
