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


 Heading into Spring!

As we head into the Spring months, the website will be getting some needed updates and maintenance, including:

  • Addition of a "Taps" page, to accommodate Seawolf obituaries and notices. I'll try to coordinate assembly of a list of those that have previously passed, as well as trying to keep any updated information for current arrangements.
  • Shared images from our fantastic Honor Flight out of San Diego (still being gathered). As of today, I've only received a few collections from Seawolves in attendance. I have created an online folder where you can upload images to for me to post here... you just need to shoot me an email, and I'll email you a link to that folder. See email address below.
  • 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.

Seawolf Forum (Beta) is Temporarily Down

As mentioned, I've been working on building out a new Seawolf Forum that lives and operates directly from this website. The beta seemed to be working fairly well, but today (Thursday, March 9th, 2023), it suddenly became the cause of locking web Administrators out of the back end.

So... it's had to be disengaged temporarily until I can figure out what is causing this glitch. That could be for a day or a week... dependent upon the extent of the unglitching process.

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.

Special Request from Jessica Huckabay

With regard to the recent passing of her father (Seawolf Daniel R. Huckabay "Huck" - AMS/Tracking), Jessica has mentioned that she and her mother are looking for any stories and pictures of her dad that would be a great gift for us to keep of him. They have a Google album https://photos.app.goo.gl/7EAuCFTpNXhYhe1Y8 where they are collecting photos {feel free to share the link). Also, you can view the photos, some of his military experience. It will be updated regularly with new photos as they come in. 
The funeral will be with honor guard Wednesday April 26, 1 PM at Sacramento Valley Veterans Cemetery,  5810 Midway Rd, Dixon CA, 94560. 
The celebration of life is still in the planning phase and we will send out details once we have them. The presence of his friends from his service is welcome and appreciated. That being said I know that is a lot, cost wise and time wise so I understand if people can't make it. Thanks again. My mom's address is 48842 Green Valley Rd Fremont CA 94539, mine is 3332 Bay rd Redwood City CA 94063 phone # 510-209-1594. 
Thanks again and thanks for being a light in my dad's life.

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.
