Over the course of his career, Callaway has accumulated over 2,400 flight hours and 600 arrested landings in the EA-6B Prowler and EA-18G.

 

Reflecting upon his experience in command of the Cougars, Callaway stated that "VAQ-139's squadron motto is 'Cougars taking care of Cougars'.  I'm truly humbled to have led such a fine group of Sailors, Chiefs and Officers.  Together we've protected our brothers and sisters in combat, and done our part to make America safer for future generations.  Thank you, Cougars, for taking care of me."

 

Cmdr. Skarosi’s personal qualifications are EA-6B Naval Flight Officer and Improved Capability (ICAP) III pilot, EA-18G pilot, Joint Qualified Officer; Wing qualified Landing Signals Officer (LSO, EA-6B), Command Duty Officer (CDO) underway, and a Prowler Tactics Instructor (PTI).
