HSL-42 Proud Warrior

HSL-42 Proud Warrior

Helicopter Squadron Light FOUR TWO was commissioned on Oct. 5, 1984, at Naval Station Mayport as the East Coast’s first Lamps MK-III Squadron to fly the SH-60B helicopters. HSL-42 supports 10 operational detachments which deploy with one or two aircraft providing a multi-mission air warfare capability. The Squadron’s namesake, Proud Warrior, is derived from the heritage of the Native American Indian: Principled. Disciplined. Confident. HSL-42 relocated to Naval Air Station Jacksonville in April 2010 and is making preparations for the transition to MH-60R helicopters.
