Our Team

All Volunteers & Unpaid

Our team is composed of a very diverse and qualified group of unpaid volunteer veterans of the VMAQ community.  Many have served as department leaders and squadron commanders and share tens of thousands of hours flying the EA-6B while others maintained or supported the 'Chariot of Electronic Armageddon'.  All share in the passion of our mission.
