Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod was commissioned on August 29, 1970. It was the coalition of CGAS Salem, MA and detachment Quonset Point, RI. It acquired the HH-3F from its Salem unit. I flew in the HH-3F, as a SAR Radio/Radioman/Aircrewman from July 10, 1970 through August 20, 1971 when I finished my enlistment. AT-2 William G. Shea Jr.
