    Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron Seventeen

    My Husband was one of the plank owners of this squadron, Commander McCamy and the Exec. office was Charlie great squadron, sad to leave them
    Jan86-Aug89 served with hs-17. Participated in the bombing of lybia till last cruise for the USS Coral Sea was a pclse and ordenanceman also detachments on USS Caron
    1987-1990, I served with HS-17 as an AO and can promise you that you were not part of that squadron during that time. I did work line division as a plane captain before I went to my shop . Being that no name is mentioned does it happen to be Salters?
    Aug88-Jun91, I served as a enlisted Airman with HS-17. We won the Arnold J. Isable award for ASW excellence, the battle E award for our response time Yo help aide in the tragedy of the USS IOWA (BB-61 ) number 2 turret explosion on April 19th 1989 .We had all 6 of our Helicopters in the air in 30 minutes,, we won the Maintenance award for our incredible job keeping them flying.I sailed on the last Med cruise before the USS CORAL SEA CV-43. MY SQUADRON set sail on the USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN CVN-72 right out of Newport News brand new ,we did sea trials with the Big ABE then took her `round the horn ShellBack cruise to San Diego in 1990. I don't want to sound selfish ,but this is the Best Squadron I and my other Shipmates to serve with in the short time She was Commissioned to Her Decommissioning.
    1989-1990, I was in HS-17 as the Legal Officer. Had big time family problems and had to step down from flying which virtually ended my career! I enjoyed the Naval Aviator flying experience for the short time it lasted! I still remember being deployed on Coral Sea! She was a very old lady! Lol!
