ASAN, Guam – Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 25 assisted in the medical evacuation (MEDEVAC) of a patient from a civilian vessel located 88 nautical miles southeast of Guam who required medical care April 28.

A Navy MH-60S helicopter was launched from Andersen Air Force Base at approximately 10:22 a.m. Navy personnel transported the patient to U.S. Naval Hospital Guam, from where he was subsequently transported to Guam Memorial Hospital.

HSC-25 is the Navy’s only forward-deployed MH-60S expeditionary squadron. As a part of Helicopter Sea Combat Wing Pacific, it provides an armed helicopter capability for U.S. 7th Fleet in support of logistics, search and rescue and humanitarian assistance missions.

HSC-25 is also the only squadron that maintains a 24-hour search and rescue and medical evacuation alert posture, directly supporting the U.S. Coast Guard and Joint Region Marianas.
