Helicopter (Helo/Air) Detachments

As SAR (Search and Rescue), the ship was called upon to respond to emergencies in which the aviators were forced to abandon their aircraft.  To aid in these efforts STRETT embarked a UH-2A SAR-configured helicopter detachment prior to each line period.  In addition, on a daily basis, a SH3-A SAR helicopter was from one of the aircraft carriers to remain aboard STERETT in an alert status” (Command Report, 1968).
