Our customer requests for new base page additions on MilitaryByOwner.com are coming in fast and furious of late, with California proving to be one of the more popular states we are receiving requests from. One of the most recent requests that we have added as a California base page selection for people to find and advertise homes for sale or rent is titled Fresno National Guard. The California Air National Guard Base in Fresno is home to the 144th Fighter Wing (FW) as well as the nearby Fresno National Guard Armory. The 144th FW utilizes the F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft and provides air defense protection to California with its area of operation stretching from Oregon down to the Mexican border. This facility is based at the Fresno Yosemite International Airport which is in eastern Fresno, CA. The title of the airport bears the name Yosemite, however, the facility approximately 60 miles south of Yosemite National Park on California State Route 41. Downtown Fresno is only 5 miles east of the base, and the city of Clovis, CA is about 6 miles north of the base.
Fresno is located in Central California’s San Joaquin Valley and is #1 in agricultural production in the nation, renowned for the amazing variety, quality, and quantities of produce yields. It is the largest metropolitan area in the San Joaquin Valley and as such reigns as the business, financial, cultural and entertainment capital of that area. Average winter temperatures are generally high 30’s to the high 50’s (Fahrenheit) and summer temperatures average the low 60’s to high 90’s (Fahrenheit). Fresno and nearby Clovis, CA are considered the gateway to the Sierra National Forest and it is a relatively short drive to visit one of the amazing nearby national parks, to include Yosemite National Park, Kings Canyon National Park and Sequoia National Park. If you are looking for housing or homes near the Fresno National Guard base, or wish to advertise your home in the area, we welcome you to do so using MilitaryByOwner.com. If you have a military installation you would like to see us add to our database, please let us know.
