Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron Seven Five
Established June 1, 1970, Emerald Knights have been stationed at NAS Lakehurst, NAS Willow Grove and NAS Jacksonville. The squadron has flown the SH-3D, SH-3G, SH-3H, UH-3H, SH-60F and HH-60H helicopters. At the time of closure had six SH-60F Seahawks. Disestablished March 1st, 2007

When I was there in 1972 we actually had some SH-3A models
The squadron moved from Lakehurst to Willow Grove the summer of 1979. When graduating a school I had put in for hs75 @ Lakehurst but when my orders came in it was for Willow Grove. I reported there in Aug of 79.
HS-75 had moved to NAS Jacksonville by the time I joined the command in mid 1995.
