    1970 HS-74 commissioned at Quonset. I reported to squadron in 1971!
    1970-1974 HS-74 The whole time I was in, we had HS-3A. I was with them when Quonset closed and we moved to South Weymouth. In 72 we stripped the sonar from 5 helos. We started off to Lakehurst NJ. My help had no anger so we headed back. Had navgear installed and were held over night. Next day we flew to Elmira/Corning New Yok for 13 days. Performing radio runs for NY State Police and performing medivacs.
    1973, HS-4 was originally commissioned at NAS Quonset Point, RI. After NAS Quonset was closed; HS-74 transferred command to NAS South Weymouth, MA
