  • Biography/Historical Note

    Cal Waldhart is a former crew member that served aboard Intrepid during the early 1970s. He was a member of Helicopter Support Squadron HS-5 and participated on the 1972-73 North Atlantic cruise. During this time HS-11 was already deployed on Intrepid. HS-5 was on the USS Wasp but that ship was being decommissioned. HS-5 was added to the Intrepid cruise giving the Air Wing the unique situation of having two helicopter units at the same time. The two squadrons operated as a single unit during the cruise.
