Red Wolves, Friends, and Family,

Today marks the last day of the command and, while our melancholy is understandable and shared, it will never overshadow the wonderful memories and experiences I've had with the Red Wolves.

Since 2008, I've had the privilege of wearing the patch. Of deploying to the crappiest parts of the world with the best patriots our country has grown. And it has been an honor to be entrusted to lead them in the aircraft and on the ground. An honor I never took lightly.

There are many of you whom I suspect hoped and possibly petitioned to keep the squadron open. Thank you for your efforts! Today doesn't signify a failure or wasted energy on your part because HSC-85 has been saved and is able to continue providing the best support possible to our country's finest. That victory came through your efforts.

Despite the close of the command, this page will remain open because, if history repeats itself yet again, we'll see support for the reestablishment of HSC-84 so our country's elite get the dedicated support they deserve. When that happens, I'll be waiting to post the notice.

Until then, fair winds, following seas, and until we meet again.

Very respectfully,
qp

CDR Quinton Packard
Commanding Officer, HSC-84

The reserve squadron was deployed in the Middle East for 12 years and seven months. It is poised to be shut down as part of a Pentagon budget-cutting plan that determined that other active-duty helicopter squadrons could pick up the slack.

A few years back some brilliant minds recognized the importance of sea power in the early stages of our country as an independent nation. From that point on we have been challenged day and day out, we have suffered great loses, we have witnesses glorious victories and at the end of the day, we have seen our colors stand proud for those free and just souls to see the greatness of our nation and for others to feel the need to challenge it. Today we can proudly claim to be part of the greatest sea crew, naval history has ever seen. Our faces and our memories will fade with the unforgiving wind of time but our impetuous spirit and our actions will be remembered and celebrated many years from now, in the same way today we remember and celebrate those many brave men and women who suffer those loses and lived those glorious victories and stood our colors proud and gave us the opportunity to proudly call it OUR NAVY! HAPPY 240th BIRTHDAY!

Here are the key messages regarding Hurricane Joaquin for Friday morning, October 2. Get the latest on Joaquin by visiting www.hurricanes.gov

NOAA NWS National Hurricane Center
10/01/2015

NOAA NWS National Hurricane Center

The eye of major Hurricane Joaquin is passing over Samana Cays in the Bahamas, 80 miles south-southeast of San Salvador. Reports from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that maximum sustained winds have increased to near 125 mph - a strong Category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Some additional strengthening is possible during the next 24 hours, with some fluctuations in intensity possible Friday night and Saturday.

A turn toward the northwest and north is expected on Friday, and a faster motion toward the north is expected Friday night & Saturday. On the forecast track, the center of Joaquin will move near or over portions of the central Bahamas today and tonight and pass near or over portions of the northwestern Bahamas on Friday.

A Hurricane Warning continues for the Central and Northwest Bahamas (including the Abacos, Berry Islands, Eleuthera, Grand Bahama Island, and New Providence) and for the Acklins, Crooked Island, and Mayaguana in the Southeast Bahamas. A Hurricane Watch is in effect for Bimini and Andros Island. A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for the remainder of the southeastern Bahamas now including the Turks and Caicos Island, and Andros Island.

Confidence in the details of the forecast after 72 hours is still low, since there have been some large changes in the model guidance overnight and a large spread in the model solutions remains, with potential impacts from the Carolinas through New England. It is also possible that Joaquin will remain far from the U.S. east coast. A hurricane watch for the U.S. coast would likely not occur until at least Friday morning.

It's too early to talk about specific wind, rain, or surge impacts from Joaquin in the United States. Regardless of Joaquin's track, strong onshore winds will create minor to moderate coastal flooding along the coasts of the mid-Atlantic and northeastern states through the weekend.

Joaquin is major hurricane with maximum sustained winds near 120 mph with higher gusts - a Category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Some strengthening during the next day or so is forecast, with some fluctuations in intensity possible on Friday.

A Hurricane Warning is in effect for the Central and Northwest Bahamas, and in the Southeast Bahamas for the Acklins, Crooked Island, and Mayaguana. A Tropical Storm Warning continues for the remainder of the Southeast Bahamas excluding the Turks and Caicos Islands. A Hurricane Watch is in effect for Bimini and Andros Island.

Joaquin is centered about 20 miles north of Samana Cays Bahamas, moving toward the west-southwest near 5 mph. This motion is expected to continue today followed by a turn toward the west- northwest tonight and a turn toward the north with an increase in forward speed on Friday. On the forecast track, the center of Joaquin will move near or over portions of the Central Bahamas today and tonight and pass near or over portions of the Northwest Bahamas on Friday.

A hurricane watch for a portion of the U.S. coast could be required as early as tonight. Because landfall, if it occurs, is still more than three days away, it's too early to talk about specific wind, rain, or surge impacts from Joaquin in the United States. Regardless of Joaquin's track, strong onshore winds will create minor to moderate coastal flooding along the coasts of the mid-Atlantic and northeastern states through the weekend.

Naval Station Norfolk

Naval Station Norfolk has set Tropical Cyclone Condition of Readiness (TCCOR) 4. This condition of readiness is set when destructive winds are possible within seventy-two (72) hours. Along with destructive winds, please be aware and prepared for possible flooding.

At this time, all personnel are asked to continue with preparations. We will provide updates as necessary.

NHC has upgraded Tropical Storm Joaquin to a hurricane. Reports from a U.S. Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that maximum sustained winds have increased to near 75 mph - a Category 1 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Additional strengthening during the next 48 hours is forecast.

A Hurricane Warning continues for the Central Bahamas, including Cat Island, the Exumas, Long Island, Rum Cay, and San Salvador. A Hurricane Watch continues for the Northwest Bahamas, including the Abacos, Berry Islands, Bimini, Eleuthera, Grand Bahama Island, and New Providence, but not Andros Island. Hurricane conditions are expected to reach portions of the Central Bahamas by midday Thursday. Winds are expected to first reach tropical storm strength in the warning area tonight, making outside preparations difficult or dangerous. Preparations to protect life and property should be rushed to completion.

Joaquin is centered about 245 miles east-northeast of the Central Bahamas, moving toward the southwest near 6 mph. A general motion toward the west-southwest or southwest is expected to continue through tonight. A turn toward the west and a decrease in forward speed are forecast on Thursday. On the forecast track, the center of Joaquin is expected to move near or over portions of the central Bahamas tonight and Thursday.

Confidence in the details of the track forecast late in the period remains very low, since the environmental steering currents are complex and not being handled in a consistent manner by the models. Given that a wide range of outcomes is possible, it is too soon to say what impacts, if any, Joaquin will have on the United States.

NAVADMIN 224/15

MSGID/GENADMIN/CNO WASHINGTON DC/N00/SEP//

SUBJ/CNO MESSAGE TO THE FLEET//

RMKS/1. I am honored to be your next Chief of Naval Operations.

2. I'd first like to thank Admiral Jon Greenert and his wife Darleen for their magnificent service to our
country for over 40 years, and especially for their role in leading our Navy these past four years. They
have been tireless and superb advocates for our Sailors and their families, our Navy, and our Nation.

3. I hold some core beliefs about our Navy that guide me. The Naval profession is founded on bonds of
trust and confidence - between us and the American people, and amongst us as members of our Navy
team.

4. The Navy must be at sea, underway. We must be present in key areas of the world protecting
American interests - enabling access to international markets and trade, responding to crises, and
providing security.

5. We must be able to operate seamlessly with others. Our premier partner is the United States Marine
Corps. We also operate closely with our fellow services, and our allies and partners.

6. The muscle and bones of the Navy are our ships, submarines and aircraft - highly capable, exercised
daily, well equipped, and ready to operate at sea and far from home.

7. But the heart and soul of the Navy is you, our people. Every day around the world, you can be found
on, under, and over the sea.
You are smart, resourceful, committed Americans who want to be part of something special - to serve
our country and to be part of a high-performing team. You are rightly proud of what you do and you are
a formidable force.

8. I believe in the strength that flows from our families.
The Richardsons are a typical Navy family - 20 moves, dozens of schools, stationed all around the
country and overseas. Today, the Richardson family, like all Navy families, remains strong and ready to
serve our nation.

9. America sends us their sons and daughters, their brothers and sisters, their fathers and mothers, to
join our team and go to sea with us - if needed, into harm's way. In return for that commitment, we
must provide a positive and respectful environment where we can all thrive and reach our highest
potential.

10. Finally, the American people demand, as they should, that we execute our mission in a prudent and
responsible way, worthy of their confidence in us.

11. It is a privilege to work with, and especially to lead, such a capable and creative team. Despite
growing challenges and significant strains, you continue to go to sea to do what must be done today,
and you create and innovate in order to prevail tomorrow. You learn faster, adapt quicker, and fight
harder than any adversary.

12. The bottom line is that in any situation, in any competition, and certainly in any fight, America
expects that their Navy will find a way to win - and we will.

13. Thank you for your leadership and service to keep our nation secure. I am extremely proud to be
part of this amazing team. I will give everything I have to honor and strengthen the bonds of trust and
confidence we share, and that make our Navy the strongest that has ever sailed the seas.

14. Released by ADM J. M. Richardson, Chief of Naval Operations.//

Fellow Redwolves, I will cross post this on my own page and feel free to copy and share, Tony prince is a retired Navy Captain that I have golfed with for 15 years, in his retirement he is focusing on charitable work, his current project struck me as one some of us would be interested in... Dear Friends, I'm fundraising for the new Red Wolf Habitat at the Brookgreen Gardens Lowcountry Zoo! The Red Wolf is one of the most endangered canids in the world, as years of hunting and habitat loss had driven the species to the brink of extinction by 1970. Brookgreen Gardens Lowcountry Zoo is dedicating 4 acres of space to house and breed Red Wolves in cooperation with the Red Wolf Species Survival Plan. The new enclosure space will enable us to house two breeding pairs with plenty of space in a natural environment. I'm inviting friends like you to support my fundraiser. You can find out more about the project and make a donation here: https://igfn.us/vf/redwolfpack/TonyPrince Thanks for taking a moment to check it out! Thanks and stay safe! Tony Prince Manager for Volunteer Engagement Brookgreen Gardens Murrells Inlet, SC
Fellow Redwolves. Last month we ran a survey asking your opinion about Redwolf swag and if you’d be interested in a “swag” order. Tons of people said they were interested so we pressed forward with the order. I posted earlier this week about how to order your swag. If you haven’t ordered yet please get on it and don’t delay. We ordered the swag based on your interest so we’d like to get it to you and not hold on to it. It’s a great deal with really sweet gear. You can see details on how to order on the HCS4 FB page.
Redwolves, I'm trying to post an update to the plan for ordering Redwolf merchandise. Unfortunately this page limits what I can post. The details for ordering Redwolf swag are postsed on the HCS4 page. You can find this page at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/112819190431/?multi_permalinks=10157770386110432¬if_id=1596729651863264¬if_t=feedback_reaction_generic If you're interested please take the time to look at and read the info. I look forward to hearing from you.
Fellow Redwolves, two weeks ago I asked your thoughts about gear to celebrate our history. To help with this initiative, we’ve put together a survey to define what people would be interested in. Please take a few minutes and complete the survey below. This will help us fine tune our project to meet your desires:
Anyone have the HSC-84 or HCS-4 logo they can send me? PM me and I’ll send my email. Thanks.
Anybody have digital files of the logo they can send me? Looking for full color, black and any other you may have. PM me and I can give you my email. Thanks.
