HistoryA BIT OF HISTORY: "...My father was LT(jg) George Iwasko, Jr. He was an AEW (Airborne Early Warning) Officer aboard the EP-3C with VQ-1. He was stationed at NAS Agana, Guam during the early to mid 1970's. I was very young at the time between 4-7 years old. I remember alot actually of going to the base and seeing the Orions and super connie's. I also remember my father pushing me up into a " Whale" A-3 Skywarrior. I remember them fondley. I have aquired alot of squadron photos. I would like to share them with other members. My father was also a member of VQ-2 back when they flew EC-130's. Here are a few of my Father's photograph's..."
