More About HC-7:
Despite the turbulent times in the 1960s in a changing America, what held true then remains so today, the steadfast courage of the American serviceman. The combat ethos "leave no warrior behind" was operational doctrine for one mission-focused squadron, Helicopter Combat Support Squadron Seven. In the history of the U.S. Navy, HC-7 was the only active-duty combat search and rescue squadron ever to exist. And became one of the most highly decorated naval squadrons in Vietnam.
