Scholarship Description

This scholarship is presented by the membership of the Intruder Association to honor those who gave their lives in service to their country while flying the A-6 Intruder. An integral part of Naval Aviation for 32 years, the Intruder flew combat missions in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Grenada, Lebanon, Libya, Iraq, Kuwait and the Persian Gulf. There were 28 squadrons among the Navy, Marine Corps and Reserve forces that operated the five A-6 Intruder models (A-6A, A-6B, A-6C, KA-6D and A-6E). Intruder crews and their technical representatives specialized in low-level/ all-weather attack missions while taking part in all phases of the attack mission as they evolved during Vietnam and the Cold War. The United States lost 251 aviators in the A-6; this scholarship is to honor their memory and sacrifice.
