Former BC resident takes command of naval base

Former Boulder City resident Cmdr. Samuel Y. Hanaki relieved Cmdr. Thomas M. Santomauro as commander of Air Test and Evaluation Squadron Three Zero (VX-30) at Point Mugu Naval Base in California on Feb. 26.

Rear Adm. Paul A. Sohl, commander of Fleet Readiness Centers, was guest speaker for the change in command ceremony.

Established in May 1995, Air Test and Evaluation Squadron Three Zero is a weapons test squadron. Its mission is to provide research, development, test and evaluation of unmanned, fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft and weapons systems and to support the Sea Test Range locally and worldwide.

Hanaki lived in Boulder City from 1982-’86 with his family and was involved in the community. He attended elementary and junior high school here. His mother worked as a librarian and his father worked for the National Park Service at Lake Mead National Recreation Area and volunteered as a Boulder City firefighter/emergency medical technician. His sister was a track and basketball player at Boulder City High School and his brother was valedictorian the year he graduated.

His parents have since retired and live in the city.
