I am from the HS-14 Chargers of NAF Atsugi, Japan. I am sending this video which commemorate HS-14s 2012 "Last Ride" cruise onboard USS George Washington ending 18 years of time home stationed at NAF Atsugi, Japan attached with Carrier Air Wing FIVE. Our squadron will be transitioning from Japan where we flew SH-60F and HH-60H aricraft to NAS North Island to transition to the MH-60S Knighthawk March 2013.The video covers time spent at numerous locations to include: Camp Fuji Range Japan, Guam, Okinawa, and other locations in the Western Pacific. This video would not have been possible without the amazing support from all members of HS-14, the USS George Washington(CVN-73), Explosive Ordinance Disposal Mobile Unit FIVE, and the USS McCampbell (DDG-85)
