Prowler Bows Out After 48 Years

On March 8 Marine Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron Two (VMAQ-2) “Death Jesters” was formally decommissioned at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, North Carolina. The ceremony also brought the operational career of the Northrop Grumman EA-6B Prowler to a conclusion after nearly 50 years of service and involvement in all major U.S. military operations since the final months of the Vietnam War.
