The Navy’s EA-6B Prowler Completes Its Final Carrier Cruise

Jeebus, I am beginning to think that I may actually be getting old……………………….

Among The Joshua Trees

From Jalopnik today.

They are pretty much gone now. I remember when the Prowlers came to The Good Ship Independence in the Spring of 1974. The squadron was VAQ-132, The Scorpions. My good buddy Darryl Hinkle was in that outfit. It was the first of four cruises that we made together over our careers.

The Garudas were the last.

At the end of my career, I was in VAQ-140, The Patriots who still have the distinction of having the most beautiful Prowler CAG Jet that ever served…………………….

    You know you are getting old when the ship you served on is either in mothballs or scrapped, and every piece of equipment you knew is in a museum

    I felt the same way, no more F-14, only “Hoovers” left are vacuum cleaners and I saw the pics of Connie being towed away to the breakers. Think I’ll sit in my rocker and reminisce for awhile.
