    Coast Guard Air Station San Diego
    The original facility was commissioned as an air station in April 1937. The base became Group San Diego in the 1960s and then Activities San Diego in the 1980s.

    Today San Diego is responsible for a maritime area 200 nautical miles off shore from the U.S. – Mexico border north to San Mateo point and inland on navigable lakes and portions of the Colorado River in California, New Mexico, Arizona and Nevada.



    From 1969 through mid 1973 when I transferred, San Diego was the only west coast base with HH-3Fs. Numbers 35, 36, 38 and 73 were at San Diego in Sept69 when I arrived there. They replaced the Albatros and HH-52A
