“Welcome Aboard!” Congratulations on your orders to HSC-9.
HSC-9, home to the World Famous Tridents, is an operational squadron attached to Carrier Air Wing EIGHT onboard the USS GEORGE H. W. BUSH (CVN 77). HSC-9 employs the MH-60S for the following missions: Search and Rescue, Plane Guard, Medical Evacuation, Anti-Surface Warfare, Personnel Recovery / Combat Search and Rescue, Non-Combatant Evacuation, Vertical Replenishment, Helicopter Visit Board Search and Seizure, Strike Coordination and Reconnaissance, Close Air Support, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance, and Anti-Terrorism Force Protection. As the first east coast transition squadron, the first squadron to receive the armed version of the MH-60S, and the first east coast HSC/CVW squadron to deploy with an HSM/CVW squadron, HSC-9 continues to set the standard for the future of the helicopter carrier community.
