US HMH-362
1988-1992, I was assigned to HMH-362. Assigned to the USS Saipan (LHA-2) in 1989/90. Someone noted that the tail code on one had an ME on it. I've always known us to have the YL, and every database I searched showed this to be true. I took the pictures, so I know they haven't been tampered with. Any thoughts why we would have had the ME on there? Thank you for your help. Ken Schubert

US HS-15 Red Lions
1982-1985, HS-15 SH-3H pilot. Checked in on a Saturday June 1982 and left 3 days later on 6 month deployment on USS Independence (CV-62) to the Med as an Ensign (Fleet) pilot for 4 of the 6 months! My 2nd deployment with HS-15 on CV-62 was Oct 1983 - only 6 hours out of Norfolk we were turned south for Grenada ops. Skipper CDR Harve Fielding (w/ LCDR Gerry Carroll copilot) received Helicopter Pilot of the Year award for a rescue of 13 Army personnel. We also performed the rescue of the first successful 4-man ejection of an S-3. Straight to Beirut after the Marine Barracks bombing. Gaddafi had threatened to put a torpedo into an American carrier. LCDR Palko and I were ready to drop a live warshot torpedo on an unknown submerged contact closing the carrier but were not given permission to drop. Very close. My third cruise with HS-15 was 84-85 to the IO as an LT. CDR Arnal Cook USNR RET

US HS-8 Eightballers
Apr73-Nov75, Served under CO's Caine, Silva, and Coats in HS-8. Was aboard when we lost Andy. Worked most of the time for "No-Ass" Arlie Plemmons in 1st Lt.'s Office because I never changed from seaman to an airdale. Cdr Coats took the hit for losing Andy, but scuttlebutt has it that he was doing as he was ordered. With the shortage of parts, we seldom had all of our birds available. You can blame the Pre-Reagan Congress for that. WestPac 75 was still amazing! We spent more of our time in Subic, with stints in Yakouska, HK, and pining to make it home. USO show aboard the Kitty Hawk in November. I never lost my admiration at seeing a wave-off from Vulture's Row. Tomcats, Phantoms, Vigilantes.....
