HistoryA BIT OF HISTORY: "...I am astounded at the lack of anything in the History Section for 1975 regarding VQ-1's participation in Operation Frequent Wind, the evacuation of Vietnam in April, 1975. We flew two EP-3Es with three aircrews for 24 hour a day overlapping coverage 20 miles off the coast from NAS Cubi Point, Philippines. We were there about April 20, ten days before the evacuation started, and we kept flying through the evac uation and for three days afterward. For those missions we received the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, the Humanitarian Action Medal, and later received a Meritorious Unit Citation. This was reclassified in 2003 as the last campaign of the Vietnam War and those of us with Combat Zone Base Pay Exemption forms can exchange the AFE for a Vietnam Service Medal...the last of the Veitnam veterans..."

HistoryA BIT OF HISTORY: "...My father was LT(jg) George Iwasko, Jr. He was an AEW (Airborne Early Warning) Officer aboard the EP-3C with VQ-1. He was stationed at NAS Agana, Guam during the early to mid 1970's. I was very young at the time between 4-7 years old. I remember alot actually of going to the base and seeing the Orions and super connie's. I also remember my father pushing me up into a " Whale" A-3 Skywarrior. I remember them fondley. I have aquired alot of squadron photos. I would like to share them with other members. My father was also a member of VQ-2 back when they flew EC-130's. Here are a few of my Father's photograph's..."
