Fleet Logistics Support Squadron 22 (VR-22) was established on 15 October 1984 at Naval Station Rota, Spain. The Medriders were formed as a separate squadron with personnel and four C-130F Hercules transport aircraft from VR-24 Detachment Rota.
VR-22’s primary mission was to carry out medium-lift logistics flights in support of the U.S. Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean. Its roles included parachutist and cargo dropping, as well as medical evacuation. In 1985, the squadron acquired two KC-130F tankers from the Marine Corps.
