hs-85-patchHS-85 was established as Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron Eight Five on 1 July 1970 at Naval Air Station (NAS) Alameda, CA.

In 1993, HS-85 moved from NAS Alameda to NAS North Island to assume the Target Launch and Target/Torpedo Recovery mission at Naval Auxiliary Landing Field (NALF) San Clemente Island, CA upon the decommissioning of Helicopter Combat Support Squadron ONE.

HS-85 became HC-85 on 1 October 1994, reflecting a change in squadron mission from ASW to Combat Support.

  1. HS-85 was my first duty station when I was in the NAVY. I had good times and worked with great people there. I remember when they moved to NAS North Island. To who all served with me from 1990 to 1993. I wish you all the luck in the world. AZ2 William Holmes
