HELATKLTRON-3 Seawolves

US Navy Helicopter Attack (Light) Squadron Three Seawolves, Vietnam 1966-1972

Happy New Year!

As we head into the New Year weekend celebration, we're wishing Seawolves and their families a safe and healthy entrance to 2023.  The website will be getting some needed updates and maintenance shortly, including:

  • Shared images from our fantastic Honor Flight out of San Diego (still being gathered)
  • Shared images from the SEAL Muster
  • Other news as appropriate

If you have images to share from any Seawolf event or personal collection, please contact me directly at seawolfweb2020@gmail.com
I will email you a Dropbox link to a shared folder in the cloud where you can upload those to.

New Seawolf Forum (Beta) is Up

As mentioned, I've been working on building out a new Seawolf Forum that lives and operates directly from this website. A link has been provided in the last block at the bottom of this page,. Please take the time to look, and play, as it's still an ongoing process to get any bugs out. I think it will work well once we've had some feedback. Should you prefer to not use the block link, simply click HERE to access it.

NOTE: Our old forum is still up and functioning, and will remain as such until this new forum is cleanly operational. Thanks, in advance, for your patience.

Do not fall for Facebook merchandise scams!!!!
Our Online Ship's Store is OPEN FOR BUSINESS!

In light of the ongoing issues with Facebook scams offering Seawolf merchandise, it's important to note that official Seawolf merchandise can only be purchased through our ship's store. It's also important that we all understand that this is a primary source of revenue with which the association provides scholarships and more.

Please continue to patronize our store and support our organization. Remember... Upon viewing your cart, and at checkout, you'll continue to need to print out your order and send that printout, with your check for the full purchase amount to:

The Seawolf Association is looking for any personnel who were attached to HA(L)-3, HC-1, or FASU Binh Thuy. If you were, or know anyone who was, please contact us at (858) 524-9917. We do not have access to the official Navy records as they remain classified in the National Archives due to the covert nature of many of the operations, therefore, the only way we can locate fellow Seawolves is with your help.

On 3 January 1997, the Bureau of Naval Personnel authorized, retroactively, the awarding of the Combat Aircrew Insignia to Combat Aircrewmen who served in HA(L)-3. With this approval, we need to locate our doorgunners so they can be awarded these devices and accompanying certificate. To request the insignia, fill out and send in the attached affidavit.
