A Pheonix Is Reborn

Recommended Posts

Just got the word that not only HCS-5's mission but the name Firehawks has given to our successor squadron HSC-85. The fact that our unit "mascot" is a Phoenix is not lost on all those who were part of HCS. The phrase in my signature "FIREHAWKS FOREVER" have a new meaning. Maybe I"ll try to get un-retired and back into the game.

Only took less than 5 years to realize that the HS and Fleet communities could not meet the demands of the mission, supporting Special Warfare operations. Best part is that as far as tradition and knowledge go, there are a lot of legacy Firehawks in the command that started their careers in HSC-5 and did multiple combat tours so 85 will not be re-inventing the wheel. My one regret is that I can't get the time off from work to attend the renaming ceremony. That said anyone form HA(L)-3, HC-7, HAL-4/5 and HCS-4/5 are welcome, the info was being passed out to everyone beginning late last night. The funny part is how many retirees, myself included, are talking about getting waivers cut to rejoin the unit.
