NAVAL STATION NORFOLK, Va. - News 3 is honoring HSC-22 as our January Squadron of the Month!

The Sea Knights are a Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron that's been based at Naval Station Norfolk since September 29, 2006.

They're an active unit, with certain members leaving on different sea-going detachments throughout the year. Most recently, members got back on Christmas Eve after a six month deployment on the USS Wasp.

They operate the MH-60S Seahawk, commonly known as the Knighthawk, to carry out worldwide missions of logistic support, search and rescue, and medical evacuations.

The squadron is home to 37 pilots and 177 Sailors and search and rescue swimmers. It's one of the smallest squadrons in the Navy.
