A native of Saratoga, New York, LCDR Premo graduated from Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake Central High School in 1998. Following high school, he enlisted in the Navy and reported to Recruit Training Command Great Lakes, Illinois. Upon completion of initial recruit training, he reported to Naval Aviation Schools Command in Pensacola, Florida where he attended Naval Aircrew Candidate School, Aviation Rescue Swimmer School, and Aviation Warfare Specialist “A” School. Follow-on orders brought him to Mayport, Florida and the “AIRWOLVES” of HSL-40 for Fleet Replacement Training in the SH-60B helicopter. He received his Naval Aircrewman “Wings of Gold” in January 2000 and reported to the “GRANDMASTERS” of HSL-46 for his first sea tour. He amassed over 1200 flight hours and completed three deployments before receiving orders back to the “AIRWOLVES” of HSL-40 to serve as an Aircrew Instructor in November 2004. LCDR Premo attended Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University while serving on active duty and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Professional Aeronautics. He applied and was accepted to attend Officer Candidate School in Newport, Rhode Island where he received his commission in July 2008.
