A mission-feature of VMAQ-2, Marine Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron-2 “Death Jesters” --though they prefer their vintage squadron moniker, the “Playboys,” a nod to the 100th Anniversary of U.S. Marine Corps Aviation. They provide top cover on the electromagnetic spectrum to coalition forces in Afghanistan. Includes sound bites from Capt. Dan Gibbon, EA-6B Pilot, Capt. Garon Taylor-Tyree, EA-6B ECMO and Lance Cpl. Calvin Spears, EA-6B Plane Captain. Also available in high definition.
