Enlisted Aviation Warfare Specialist Qualification and Insignia
From: President, Seawolf HA(L)-3 Association
To: All Seawolf HA(L)-3 Association Members
Subject: Enlisted Aviation Warfare Specialist Qualification and Insignia
The United States Navy is recognizing the enlisted men that served during "Vietnam Era" with retroactive qualification for Enlisted Aviation Warfare Specialist (EAWS) Insignia. For our Association this would include men of HA(L)-3, FASU Binh Thuy, and HC-1 Game Warden Detachments which immediately preceded HA(L)-3, as honorary Enlisted Aviation Warfare Specialists.
The first awards certificates will be presented at the upcoming reunion in Nashville, Tennessee, August 20-24, 2008. Those honored there will also receive, and be authorized to wear, the EAWS insignia pin.
Those Association members who are not able to attend the reunion may receive their certificates and pins by mail, or on other appropriate occasions. Other men who are not Association members may also apply to the Association to receive the appropriate recognition after validation of qualification.
Congratulations and thank you for your service
Seawolf HA(L)-3 Association.
