This site was established to provide a focus for collecting an oral and visual history of the combat operations of Fighter Squadron 151 during its two Vietnam deployments aboard USS Midway as a component of Carrier Air Wing Five.
There are many online resources dealing with other military aviation units and military aviation in general. However, this website focuses exclusively on activities of VF-151 during the two cruises of 1971-73. To avoid distracting from and diluting that theme, the privilege of posting material on this site is restricted primarily to former VF-151 aircrews, officers, enlisted and those closely associated with our squadron's combat operations. Exceptions to that restriction will be evaluated on an individual basis.
That said, the contents of this site are open to public view with the hope that the stories and images from those intense and challenging times will be of interest to family and friends of squadron members.
