Thanks for starting up this topic, it was another one on my to do list although I was also thinking of including all of the radar picket types (AGR, YAGR, DDR, DER)

 

Excellent resource on these ships here http://www.yagrs.org/ships.htm

Here's another AGR Squadron - RADRON TWO - Radar Picket Squadron Two, NORAD (made by Gemsco)

My Dad was assigned as a Radarman aboard the Interdictor during his last year in the Navy, after a 3 year Far East stint with COMSVTHFLT...He served under Schoech and Moorer....when he received his orders home, Moorer looked at them, and told my dad "None of my boys should have to serve on a :)ing garbage scow like that, say the word, and I will cancel these and keep you in FLAGPLOT"...my dad was looking forward to getting back to the land of round eye's after 3 years in the Far East, so he took the Interdictor.

 

He said it was really the best duty he had....really good chow, lots of room, basketball courts in the hold....

 

I have a patch, and a metal coat of arms (for a plaque I would guess) tucked away too...
