US HC-1 Fleet Angels
1975-1979, I was in HC-1 as an ADJ. Was stationed at Ream Field in Imperial Beach, CA when I first arrived which was dubbed "Helicopter Capitol of the World", then transitioned to North Island in Coronado, CA. Attended ADJ training in Millington Tennessee, FAM school with HS-10 at Ream Field and Aircrew training with HSL-31. Volunteered for flight duty and flew in HC-1 Det 3,4 and 5. Had the opportunity to visit our sister squadron in Atsugi, Japan on one of our WestPacs aboard the USS Coral Sea who were stationed on the USS Midway. Fond memories of all the crazy men and women in that squadron both stateside and overseas. Had a blast in Fallon when we were flying the HH-3As for Det 5. Who can forget the Whirlybird bar right across the street from Ream Field in Imperial Beach..lol
