Welcome to Steeljaw Scribe -

We’ve been around since early 2005 and the years have seen a variety of postings on a number of topics ranging from the serious (nukes, naval strategy) to the lighter side (see: “Of Youthful Exuberance and the Search for Speed”).  But mostly we’ve written about and will continue to focus on the Navy’s VAW community – its heritage, mission, people and aircraft.  We don’t go fast (really), haven’t had movies made about us and at times past, were treated as the crazy aunt/uncle in the attic – acknowledged, but generally left to our own devices.  That began to change with the E-2C and as it morphed from the Group 0 birds to the Hawkeye 2K and eventually, the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye, the vision of those long ago pioneers associated with Project CADILLAC and succeeding generations of VAW/VW advocates has come to fruition.  Much of that story is told on the pages of the Blog which can be perused through Steeljaw Scribe: The Blog – the most recent posts are found below.  Life growing up as a young JO to CO is found in the Reflections area of the website – the names have (mostly) been changed to protect the (not so) innocent.  Mostly. Checkout the Steeljaw Gallery for changing images of VAW, Naval Aviation and the Navy from yesterday and today.  Oh — and just what is a Steeljaw?  Well – you can read up on it here: “What is a steeljaw,” or find one of us wearing the patch.  But fair warning – we are a rare breed that must be diligently sought out.

Enjoy the trip and if you have any questions, drop us a line.
