Marine Corps Base Hawaii – HSM-37 – SH-60B poster art.
This vintage art deco style military aviation travel poster “Marine Corps Base Hawaii – HSM-37 – SH-60B” is dedicated to all the hard working men and women who served with HSM-37. Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron THIRTY-SEVEN (HSM-37) was established on 3 July 1975 aboard Naval Air Station, Barbers Point, Hawaii, and remains the Navy’s oldest operational Light Airborne Multi-Purpose System (LAMPS) squadron. As a result of the Base Realignment and Closure Act (BRAC), HSM-37 relocated to the beautiful windward side of Oahu at Marine Corps Base Hawaii in February 1999. The Squadron consists of 45 officers and 215 enlisted personnel who maintain and operate ten Sikorsky SH-60B “Seahawk” helicopters. On 6 February 1992, HSM-37 became the only U.S. Navy Helicopter squadron to transition from the SH-2F Seasprite (LAMPS MK I) to the SH-60B Seahawk (LAMPS MK III). HSM-37 operated as a composite LAMPS MK I/III squadron until 1 October 1993, at which time it completed the transition to the SH-60B. The mission of the Easyriders is to provide highly trained, combat-ready LAMPS MK III detachments to Pacific Fleet ships.
