Commander Singh hails from Riverside, California and is a 2003 graduate of the United States Naval Academy with a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics. Following commissioning, Cmdr. Singh reported to Pensacola, Florida for flight training. He earned his Naval Aviator wings-of-gold in 2006 and was selected to train as an F/A-18C Hornet pilot with Marine Strike Fighter Training Squadron-101 in Miramar, California.

Singh completed his initial operational tour with Strike Fighter Squadron ONE FOUR SIX (VFA-146) where he served as avionics/armament division officer, assistant operations officer, and quality assurance officer. During this tour, the Blue Diamonds completed two fleet response training cycles and a western Pacific deployment aboard USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74).

Commander Singh was selected to become a strike-fighter tactics instructor and graduated from the Navy Fighter Weapons School (TOPGUN) in December 2010. He reported for duty with the Strike Fighter Weapons School Pacific as a fleet tactics instructor and the West Coast subject matter expert for F/A-18 special weapons and maritime anti-surface employment.


Singh returned to the fleet with the VFA-22 Fighting Redcocks, where he served as the squadron training officer for a full fleet response training cycle. This was followed by another sea tour with the VFA-25 Fist of the Fleet as an operational department head. During this tour, he completed an extended deployment aboard USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) to the 5th and 6th Fleet areas of responsibility.

Most recently, Singh served as strategic planner and interagency liaison for the Transregional Threats Coordination Cell (T2C2) with the Joint Chiefs of Staff in Washington, D.C.  Additionally, he served as the executive assistant for two deputy directors of T2C2.


Commander Singh has accumulated over 2,200 tactical flight hours in the F/A-18 A-F Hornet and Super Hornet aircraft, including over 400 successful carrier arrested landings. His personal decorations, campaign, and unit awards (including two recruiting Gold Wreaths) are a testament to the efforts of the outstanding Sailors and Civilians he has had the honor to serve with.
