The Marine Corps received its first Intruders in 1964. The first unit to use the A-6A was VMA(AW)-242 in Vietnam. The first unit to use the EA-6A was VMCJ-1. The Intruder has been the major workhorse of the Marine Corps for the last twenty nine years as a close air support plane from Vietnam to Bosnia. Almost all the units that had the Intruder have been changed to the F-18 or decommissioned. To see more of the Marine Corps Intruder, visit
