CGAS Brooklyn

1936 to 1998    




Coast Guard Air Station Brooklyn
Decommissioned in 1998 following its merger with CGAS Cape May, New Jersey and relocation to the new base CGAS Atlantic City



I was stationed at CGAS Brooklyn from 4/71 to 8/74. There were 3 HH3Fs and 4 HH52As stationed there. The numbers changed often as they would be sent off for major overhauls. I was a SAR AD. I operated the hoist. On New Years Eave 1972 the Ready Crew was called to a Bulgarian canning ship 80 miles off the coast of Long Island. Ordinarily not a problem, but sitting in the jump seat in the door, I could just barely make out the outboard corner of the right sponson. When the starboard ident. light blinked on it looked like a wall of green. We made the litter hoist and flew the injured crewman (skull fracture) to a hospital in New Jersey. This was the only life I saved with the HH3F. I saved 2 with the HH52A in my tour at Brooklyn and 7 in my tour at CGAS North Bend Oregon with the HH52A.
