Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the EA-6A with the Capitol Club
The Association of Old Crows Capitol Club Chapter is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the first EA-6A flight (26 April 1963) by sponsoring a luncheon with our co-host, Northrop Grumman Corporation, on Tuesday, April 30, 2013, at the Sheraton Pentagon City (the one near Marine Corps Headquarters). This event will start at 11:30 a.m. and end by 1:30 p.m. In case you did not know, the EA-6A was originally a USMC program followed by the EA-6B for the Navy and eventually the Marine Corps and now supports the Air Force. 

Our program will feature a presentation by Captain John "JJ" Thompson, USN, and Commander David "Smack" Edgarton, USN, both veteran EA-6B pilots. "JJ" is currently the OPNAV N98 AEA and F/A-18 Requirements Officer, while "Smack" works on the CNO’s staff as the Airborne Electronic Attack Requirements Officer.

The reduced cost of this event will be just $10 per person (including complementary parking) with any funds over costs going into the AOC Capitol Club’s Annual Joe Pitts Scholarship. To reserve your spot in this celebration, contact Juan Moore at, Chopper Lamb at, or any other Capitol Club BoD member via the AOC Capital Club website at, and pay via the PayPal button at the Capitol Club website.

We have to provide the Sheraton with a final headcount by April 26, so reserve your spot now. If you have any questions, contact Chopper at or (703) 623-0848.  This should be a great event with wide participation by all whole EW community, so don’t delay making your reservation.
