 VF-101 Grim Reapers Details

VF-101 Grim Reapers
Two distinct squadrons have been called the Grim Reapers, VF-10 and later VF-101, which is the main subject of this article. Officially, the US Navy does not recognize a direct lineage with disestablished squadrons if a new squadron is formed with the same designation or nickname[1]. Often, the new squadron will assume the nickname, insignia, and traditions of the earlier squadrons.

With the phase out of the F-14 Tomcat, the need for a replacement squardron no longer exists. Due to that fact, VF-101 was disestablished on September 30, 2005. 

At 1100 hours on September 15, 2005, the ‚??Grim Reapers‚?? of Fighter Squadron 101 were retired.¬†¬†The original Grim Reapers were commissioned shortly after Pearl Harbor in 1942 as Fighter Squadron 10, flying F-4F Wildcats at Naval Air Station (NAS)¬†San Diego.¬†¬†¬†During World War II, Fighter Squadron 10 was credited with 217 kills and an additional 24 probables and was the only squadron to operate Wildcats, F-6F Hellcats and F-4U Corsairs.¬†¬†The squadron was decommissioned in November of 1945.
