Images to Share?

Many have requested the ability to upload and share images on the Association website. Although we can't provide you with direct access to do so, we can provide a place for you to upload any images you wish to be shared. Once uploaded, the images will be organized accordingly by individual name/collection/event, and added to our website.

  • 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.
  • I will do my best to accommodate your needs/wants. Should you have further questions, feel free to shoot me an email. I usually respond within 24 hours.

Naval Aviation Museum Seawolf Display Effort

As you all know, and as discussed at our reunion business meeting, Ed Dyer has been working to make certain that the Seawolf Display at the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, Florida, is the very best presentation that it can be. Other than buying the B model, our mission is to get the museum to tell our story as best as it can be told in a museum setting.  I am hoping they can also provide references to let people know of other sources of information on our squadron.  I believe this our best shot for people to learn about us.  This museum is a top draw in Florida and very well known museum.  Our display is at the very entrance to Hangar Bay One so it will be well seen.
Click here to download a copy of the document provided at the OKC Reunion in September. It outlines specific materials requested by the museum in support of the HAL-3 Display.
Any items that you might provide to the museum are greatly appreciated. In addition, please note that images you may have posted on this website will be shared with the museum ONLY with your permission to do so.
The simplest way to be sure that what you may have on this website has your permission to share with the museum, is to send an email offering your permission for use.


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.
