Long deployments are tough on the sailors overseas and the friends and family stateside. We took advantage of the opportunity to welcome home the Det 4 "Yetis" with open arms as they returned from seven months at sea. Bravo Zulu for a job well done, Yetis, and welcome back!

As we celebrate a new year to add in the Navy's history, we also celebrate one of our own. Today was the LFF (Last Flight Flown) for LCDR Kyle "Groucho" Corry. He will be headed out to San Diego to be an instructor at HSC-3, the Fleet Replacement Squadron on the west coast. There he will train new pilots in the MH-60S as their last stop before hitting the fleet. Good luck on your next tour sir!

Sometimes you just need to take a weekend trip to the mountains. The CHARGERS did just that, going to Charleston, WV to participate in SAR/Emergency services training with local first responders. The CHARGERS got to practice swift water rescues by pulling "Randy" the test dummy to safety from strong Kanawha River currents. Lucky for Randy, our team is great at what they do. Thanks to the CHARGER rescue swimmers, Randy sustained no injuries and is doing just fine. No patriots, human or otherwise, were harmed in the SAR training, but all got to enjoy some great sights!

To all my Brothers and Sisters who raised their right hand to defend this country, today is your day! ARMED FORCES DAY! While you may be in your home, your sacrifices are never forgotten. You have chosen to forgo money to defend freedom. You have chosen to take another road for the better of mankind. Thank you
we have been invaded by the same weapons that affected US diplomats in 2016. These weapons with the help of China are able to send wireless signals into the brain and have the brain perceive them as thoughts. many steps involved in deployment of this weapon including a gas to keep the particles inert while they are fused together to form an artificial neural path. see Lloyd Trapezoid page Twitter, daviduk16 Tumblr, davestilman8 instagram, Ezekiel emails at malstrom Air Force base, Last Living Neanderthal Flickr reverbnation, 9176034089 for briefing.
Any Desert Hawks currently in the Kingdom that want to get together soon? I'm trying to get the Aircrew shop from HSC-5 together with yours while we are there! PM me if interested!
Happy Veterans Day to HSC 26! Thank you for your selfless acts of courage defending freedom.
Congratulations to AMCM Samuels for being selected to Master Chief under the Advancement-to-Position Program!!
Hello, this is Airman Alvizo. I was hoping to get in contact with someone about requesting a sponsor. My graduation date is scheduled for November 28th and I am to report to the command no later than December 24th. Message me when you get the chance.
They came from all walks of life. Rich, poor, city dwellers, country folks, men, woman, highly educated, high school dropouts, employed, unemployed, and the list goes on. They gave everything they had for a cause. That cause Freedom. They saw the oppressed and answered the call. They disregarded the concerns of their loved ones over the concerns of the oppressed. They lied about their age to be given the opportunity to serve. Nothing would step in their path to serve the country that they love. In a few short days we once again will celebrate the brave who ran towards the action and not away from the unknown. We will celebrate their Heroism and sacrifice of the comforts of home. Thank you to the men and women who unselfishly gave up their comforts of home to serve mankind in the quest of PEACE.
