VAQ-140, Home of the World Famous Patriots
Welcome to VAQRON ONE FOUR ZERO, America's premier Electronic Attack Squadron. We are based out of Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, attached to Carrier Air Group Seven, part of the 5th fleet. The Patriots have had an outstanding and successful record of deployments in service of our nation. We are an elite team of sailors dedicated to excellence, who strive for nothing less than 100% mission success.
Throughout America's history, the need for Electronic Attack, and countermeasure, has been proven both on and off the battlefield. When those who oppose our country's ideals threaten the nation's security, you can count on Patriots to be ready to defend Americans, both at home and abroad.
The Patriots were appointed as the "Battle Efficiency" squadron for 2009.
The Patriots were given the "Safety Pro" award for 2009.
Squadron Tactical Excellence Award – The Patriots of VAQ-140 are the 2010 winners of this award, which recognizes the VAQ squadron that has demonstrated the best overall performance over the past year.
