Happy 25th, NAWDC!

On this day in 1996, NAS Fallon’s NAWDC (Naval Aviation Warfighting Development Center) was formed by combining three commands: STRIKE “U”, TOPGUN, and TOPDOME. At the time it was known as NSAWC (Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center), but was later renamed to match the conventions of the Navy’s other Warfare Development Centers.

We at the CCM are happy to have two copies of the program for this historic event in our collection, front cover visible below.
