ABSTRACT
Helicopter Antisubmarine Light Squadron 32 (HSL-32) was established at NAS Norfolk, Virginia on August 17, 1973 formed from a nucleus of personnel from HSL-30. Invaders initially were equipped with four SH-2D and four SH-2F Seasprite Light Airborne Multipurpose System I helicopters. In 1988 HSL-32 deployed SH-2F specially equipped for operations in the Middle East, two M-60 7.62-mm door-mounted machine guns, a missile detection and jamming system and an infrared detection system. HSL-32 Detachment 2 on board USS Jack Williams distinguished itself in targeting role against Iranian naval units while participating in Operation Praying Mantis launched after USS Samuel B. Roberts struck a mine in the Persian Gulf in April 1988.
