VFA-125 is the Legacy Hornet Fleet Replacement Squadron. Effective 1 October it was folded into VFA-122, the Super Hornet FRS.
125 had been in business for thirty years. Yeah, when I was still in my first A-6 squadron.
Jesse sort of owed me for a launch and recovery of the 416 CO on a Saturday that was for a funeral fly over. It was scheduled to be mine but he wanted to do it. He got a major atta boy for it. I told him a twelve pack of Fat Tire, Saint Pauli Girl or Pete's Wicked Ale.
This was way better.
And so the Rough Raiders pass into history. I went through the Flying Eagles twenty five years ago on my way to VA-147. 122 was referred to as Corsair College in those days. A-7E Corsair II.
For some of you.......................age give away!
