Commander Andrew Imperatore

Commanding Officer, Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 142

26 October 2020 A native of Wallingford, Connecticut, Andrew Imperatore earned his commission from the US Naval Academy in 2004 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Aerospace Engineering, with distinction, and became a Naval Aviator in 2006.
Following training in the venerable EA-6B Prowler, he deployed twice aboard the USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) with the “Yellow Jackets” of Electronic Attack Squadron ONE THREE EIGHT (VAQ-138) where he served as a Landing Signals Officer. Following his JO tour, Imperatore transitioned to the F/A-18E/F Superhornet at Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 122 and then reported to VAQ-129 as an EA-18G Growler FRS Instructor from 2010-2013. Then, Imperatore seized a unique opportunity to serve as a Joint Terminal Attack Controller with SEAL Team EIGHT, deploying as the Joint Fires Officer for Special Operations Task Force-Southeast Afghanistan where he coordinated close air support for US and Afghan Special Operations Forces. During his Department Head tour in the “World Famous Gauntlets” of VAQ-136, Imperatore made two deployments with Carrier Air Wing TWO, including the 2017 Western Pacific “Armada,” and qualified as one of the first Air Interdiction Mission Commanders in the history of the Airborne Electronic Attack community.
Commander Imperatore has accumulated more than 3200 flight hours and 655 carrier arrested landings.  He is a graduate of the Naval War College non-resident program and holds a Master’s Degree from the Marine Corps Command and Staff College.  Commander Imperatore joined the Gray Wolves in November 2019 and assumed command in December 2020.
