Get a U.S. Half Dollar Enhanced to Honor Strike Fighter Squadron 25

Strike Fighter Squadron 25, also known as VFA-25 has an insignia featuring a fist clenching a lightning bolt. The fist is said to be that of Zeus, the Greek god of thunder. Over the years, four stars have been added to the insignia to represent the squadron’s participation in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and Iraq wars.

The squadron was first established as Torpedo Squadron 17 on January 1, 1943. They flew numerous missions during World War II and provided ground support for the Invasion of Iwo Jima. During the Cold War, the squadron took part in strikes against Incheon and Pyongyang, Korea. In 1959, they received their new designation: Attack Squadron 25.

The 25th deployed to Vietnam three times, flying over 3,000 missions and dropping more than 10 million pounds of munitions. During this time, they also set a record – flying 1,650 sorties in combat over 33 days.

In the 1980s and 90s, the 25th took part in the Iran-Iraq War, Operation Desert Shield, and Operation Southern Watch. After participating in Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom, the 25th is still active today.
