Society of Wild Weasels

The Society of Wild Weasels

The Society of Wild Weasels (SOWW) is an IRS recognized 501(C)3 non-profit military fraternal organization established to educate, preserve, and perpetuate the Wild Weasel (WW) Concept – the destruction of hostile electronic emitters, such as the guidance radar for Surface to Air missiles. The SOWW was established for those who have an interest in or have participated in the WW program, concept, and mission. From the F-100F first Weasels, through the F-105 F&G, the F-4 C&G, to today’s F-16 Vipers and F-35 Panthers, we have patrolled enemy airspace to protect aircraft and save lives.
