OAK HARBOR, Wash. - The Navy plans to move a squadron of electronic attack planes from Joint Base Andrews in Maryland to the Whidbey Island Naval Air Station.
VAQ-209, known as the Star Warriors, would bring four or five planes, 30 officers and 190 enlisted personnel to Oak Harbor.
The squadron recently served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
