 VAQ-130 Zappers Details

VAQ-130 Zappers

VAQ-130 is the oldest electronic warfare squadron in the U.S. Navy. The cornerstones of their command philosophy are STRENGTH and HONOR. They epitomize the best of Electronic Attack, achieving excellence in no less than every sortie they fly.

VAQ-130 was originally commissioned as Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron Thirteen (VAW-13) flying AD-5Qs in 1959. On October 1, 1968, the squadron was re-designated Electronic Attack Squadron 130 and placed under Tactical Electronic Warfare Wing Thirteen (VAQW-13). In March 1975, the Zappers relocated to their current homeport of Naval Air Station Whidbey Island and transitioned to the EA-6B Prowler. In December 2010, the Zappers returned from their last fleet deployment flying the EA-6B Prowler and began transition training in March 2011 to the EA-18G Growler; the Zappers completed transition training in November 2011.

Congratulations to the "Zappers" for winning the 2010 Battle Efficiency (Battle "E") award! The criterion for the Battle Efficiency Award is the overall readiness of the command to carry out its assigned wartime tasks, and is based on a year-long evaluation. The competition for the award is, and has always been, extremely keen. To win, a unit must demonstrate the highest state of battle readiness. Way to go, Zappers!

Congratulations to the "Zappers" for winning the The Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Aviation Safety Award, also known as the Safety "S", for calendar year 2010! This award is a tribute to outstanding safety programs and our organizations' continuous drive for excellence.

Congratulations to the "Zappers" for winning the Commander, Pacific Fleet Retention Excellence Award for FY 2010! From the message: "Your dedication and commitment to career motivation and excellence not only exemplify your superb performance, but also attests to your concern for the personal and professional needs of our Sailors. Every member of your command can be justifiably proud of this achievement." The Retention Excellence Award is also known as the "Golden Anchor" award.
