    HSL-31 : Arch Angels

    1972 to 1992    

    Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron Light 31
    On September 1st 1967, HC-1 was splitted in several new units. One of those was a LAMPS training unit for the SH-2 Seasprite helicopter designated Helicopter Combat Support Squadron Five ( HC-5 ). On March 1972, HC-5 became HSL-31. Archangels used tail code TD

    1975. Hello, I was in HSL31 from beginning early 1975 while it was still based at Imperial Beach, prior to moving to NAS North Island and I left in the spring of 1977. I LOVED EVERY Minute. Even 45 years later I MISS IT! What a GREAT squadron to be a part of. Everyone from the CO'S down were like family. I chose to stay out at the line shack (Plane captain) rather than going in to my shop. (AMH) My name is Marc Armstrong but more commonly known as or called Army for short. I'd Truly Love to reconnect with any of my old squadron friends. All ranks....
    Jul77-Nov80, I was in HSL-31, What a great squadron and some of the best people I’ve ever worked with. I’m not sure what this site is for is it possible to get more information. Thanx AMS 3rd class James (mike) Semon: now known by James(Mike)Benson, Thank You
