Squadron History[edit]

Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ-134) was originally established on June 7, 1969 at Naval Air Station Alameda, California, flying the EKA-3B Skywarriors. After two years of being commissioned, VAQ-134 stood down in July 1971 and moved to its current homeport, NAS Whidbey Island. In 1972, the "Garudas" received the EA-6B Prowler and became the Navy's third operational Prowler squadron.[1]
