Mission Statement:

The mission of VAQ-137 is to provide the best airborne electronic warfare from the sea.


Command Safety Policy:

Safety is an attitude that each of us must have in everything we do; whether on or off duty.

The Rooks are dedicated proffessionals and we must instill Safety in each and every action we take by following the established procedures, have the courage to correct those who do not and by having the commitment to be safe even when no one is watching. All injuries can be prevented.

In training there is never a need to take risks that will cause harm to our greatest assets, our people. We will maintain our professionalism by identifying risk and managing it at the appropriate level. Leadership must provide training on how to identify and assess risk; continuously evaluate our process to ensure we maintain our readiness and achieve mission success. Look out for each other and never assume. Trust and verify.
