    Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron Seven Nine
    Griffins commissioned at NAS North Island on June 2016 as the sixth West Coast carrier HSM squadron flying the MH-60R Seahawk.

    The squadron adopted its name from two decommissioned Squadrons that focused on aircraft carrier-based anti-submarine warfare: HS-9 Sea Griffins and the fixed wing aircraft VS-38 Red Griffins. The Griffins will be continuing their legacy.

    As of 2019, part of Carrier Air Wing CVW-7 aboard USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72)
