Patrol Squadron completed its multi-site deployment and returned home to
NAS Moffett Field for the last time in 1993. Concluding 26 years of
community involvement, the squadron bid farewell to the San Francisco
Bay area and was welcomed to their new home at NAS Whidbey Island,
Washington in November. VP-40 arrived at their new home having captured
the Captain J. Isbell Award and the Coastal Command Trophy for ASW
excellence. However, the ultimate recognition of the "Fighting Marlins"
pride and dedication arrive on 22 February 1994 when the squadron was
selected as the CY93 Battle "E" winner.
