The Wingman Foundation established the Memorial Patch Program so that our Naval Aviation family can honor their fallen sisters and brothers with a flight patch that squadrons and Gold Star Families were a part in creating.
We will soon launch a memorial patch to honor the fallen and their brothers and sisters-in-arms in HMH-465. The Wingman Foundation provides these patches, free of charge to the families and all members of the squadron. Information on how the public can order the patch will follow.
