I was stationed in VS-41 from 1981 to 1983, when the squadron was using S-3A aircraft. I first worked in the Ordnance Shop, then went to QA where I became a full systems QAR as a second class.

The big letters on the tail of VS-41 S2's and S3's was RA, for many years.

The guys on line would always holler "rats ass on deck" when an aircraft was approaching the squadron area. Can anyone answer this question; How did that term come to be used?

Little known fact, in 1967 the VS-41 Ordnance shop was the home of the squadron mascot. A very large WHITE RAT, which belonged to an ordnance man named Teagarden. I know that the shout out probably predates the actual rat but, it's still interesting to know.
