HSC-25 Conducts MEDEVAC At Sea


US Navy, March 06, 2012 - By Commander Joint Region Marianas, Public Affairs Office - SANTA RITA, Guam – Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 25 assisted in the medical evacuation (MEDEVAC) of a Philippines national who required advanced medical care Feb. 28.


Knight Rider 05, a Navy MH-60S helicopter, was launched from Andersen Air Force Base at approximately 11:45 a.m. The crew of two pilots, a crew chief, rescue swimmer and an Air Force doctor flew approximately 50 miles northwest of Guam to meet the cruise ship Arcadia at sea. After lowering the search-and-rescue swimmer and corpsman, Navy personnel assessed and stabilized the patient. Upon determining that the woman was stable enough to move, the crew hoisted the patient onto Knight Rider 05 and transported her to U.S. Naval Hospital Guam where she was treated and later released that same day.

The incident was the second search-and-rescue executed by HSC-25 personnel this year.


The mission of HSC-25 is to deploy detachments to conduct helicopter sea combat operations in support of 5th and 7th Fleets and national defense. In addition, the Island Knights provide logistics, search and rescue, force protection, and disaster response support to Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. As the Navy’s forward-deployed vertical replenishment squadron, HSC-25 actively contributes to the nation’s Maritime Strategy efforts, which call for the security of America and its citizens, the application of sea power to ensure the protection of America’s way of life and a strengthened partnership with allies.
