TACAMO Celebrates Women in Naval Aviation: A Q&A with Cmdr. Rebecca Anderson 
By Kathy Hieatt | April 10, 2024
The year 2023 marked the 50th anniversary of women in Naval Aviation, an anniversary that celebrated when the first women began flight school in Pensacola, Florida, back in 1973. In the years since those “first six” donned their flight suits, women’s role in Naval Aviation has expanded to serve and lead in every aspect of the enterprise. A lesser-known part of this history is the role that women have played in support of the Take Charge and Move Out (TACAMO) mission, which links the president and secretary of defense with naval ballistic missile forces during times of crisis. Throughout the years, TACAMO has been ahead of the curve in its inclusion and promotion of women, said Vern Lochausen, a retired commodore and longtime member of the TACAMO community who now serves as a consultant for the Airborne Strategic Command, Control and Communications Program Office.
