Duty @ HSL-35 in San Diego was just “home?” for me , we trained on the helicopters there , but the real job was the deployments , we deployed for 9 Months each on assorted USS’s , first on a Destroyer , and also on a Frigate. We were in the Battle-Group as an added tool for the Aircraft-Carrier , The Carrier had their own way to Protect them from enemy Submarines , and since that was our duty , and a few other uses , we often sailed ┬áseparate from most of the group , as the Carrier stayed in the deeper waters , and when we got near land in the shallow water , our Helicopter was used to protect the other ships in our group , some of the smaller ports were too small to handle the larger ships , so we saw many foreign countries .
