Calvert Football Honors Veterans
Veteran’s Day is nearing and it is a time when we, as a program, recognize and remember all the acts of valor performed by all service men and women. These individuals have and continue to serve our great country. Each week during the fall, we have the privilege and freedom to go out and play the game of football. The freedom that we have obviously comes at a price that so many families and service members understand all too well. In recognition of the great sacrifices so many have made for our life and freedoms, the Calvert Football program would like to say thank you.
In honor of veteran’s everywhere, Calvert Football has been given the great opportunity to represent the Air Force’s 4thFighter Wing, by wearing each of the squadron’s logos on our football helmets.
The 4th Fighter Wing can trace its origins to the Royal Air Force (RAF) Eagle Squadrons of World War II. The RAF Eagle Squadrons were formed with volunteer pilots from across the United States. The last Eagle Squadron was disbanded in September 1942, with most of the members transferring into the United States Army Air Forces, primarily the 4th Fighter Group of the U.S. Eighth Air Force. Many famous fighter aces came from this elite group.
Reactivated as the 4th Fighter Wing in July 1947, members served all over the world, including the Korean War, Vietnam War, Operation Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom. The 4th Fighter Wing accomplishes its training and operational missions with 92 F-15E Strike Eagles, stationed at Seymour Johnson AFB in Goldsboro, NC. The 92 Jets are assigned to the following squadrons:
- 333rd Fighter Squadron Lancers “Red”
- 334th Fighter Squadron Eagles “Blue”
- 335th Fighter Squadron Chiefs “Green”
- 336th Fighter Squadron Rocketeers “Yellow”
The 335th and 336th Fighter Squadrons are capable of deploying worldwide on short notice and immediately generating combat power, while the 333rd and 334th Fighter Squadrons are responsible for training all F-15E Strike Eagle aircrews for the U.S. Air Force.
These elite members are not only honored on Veteran’s Day, they are also honored and never forgotten, in the hearts of our Cavalier Nation!!
Thanks to all who have or still serve this great nation we live in!!
