Sea Control Squadron TWO TWO (VS-22) was re-es- tablished on May 18,1960 at Naval Air Station, Quonset Point, Rhode Island. Four years earlier, VS-22 had been disestablished at NAS Norfolk, Virginia, due to federal budget cuts. The first VS-22 ' s legacy went directly back to VA-22, the first east-coast carrier based ASW squad- ron. From re-establishment until 1974, VS-22 flew the venerable Grumman S-2 " Tracker " best known as the " Stoof . " Jet transitions started in the summer of 1974 with pilots training in T-2s and A-4s at NAS Meridian, Mississippi. On January 6, 1976, VS-22 sailed from NAS Mayport, Florida to the Mediterranean Sea onboard USS Saratoga as the first deployed S-3A Viking squadron. The Checkmates have set the VS community stan- dards since their re-establishment, winning ten Battle Efficiency Awards. During Operation Desert Storm, the squadron flew in every CVW-3 strike against Iraq. Op- erations Provide Comfort and Provide Promise brought a shift in VS-22 ' s role as , once again, the S-3B Viking ' s electronic support systems became the Battle Group Commander ' s eyes and ears in another potentially hos- tile environment. While conducting air wing proficiency operatic: during Provide Promise, the Checkmates provided i- valuable radar locating and Command and Control i- formation while U.S. Air Force assets dropped relief st plies throughout a fluid electronic warfare environme. VS-22 also had the distinction of being the first S-l command to be assigned female Sailors. On April 21, 1997, in the Eastern Mediterranean, ie Checkmates became the first S-3B squadron to laud the AGM-65F Infrared Maverick missile. During depig- ment, the Checkmates distinguished themselves in C eration Desert Fox. Over the northern Arabian Gulf ac Kuwait, VS-22 excelled as a critical strike support .; set, as Naval Air forces dominated the Iraqi skies fnr the deck of Enterprise. Since inception, the Checkmates have operated fnr the decks of legendary carriers that include: USS Ess i (CVS-9), USS Intrepid (CVS-11), USS Randolph (CY 15), USS Wasp (CVS-18), USS Oriskany (CVA-34), US Lake Champlain (CVS-39), USS Saratoga (CV-60), UJS Independence (CV-62), USS Kitty Hawk (CV-63), W Enterprise (CVN-65), USS America (CV-66), USS Join F.
