HSC-25 places third in aircraft pull Published May 21, 2007 By SKC Edwin White Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron-Two Five ANDERSEN AIR FORCE BASE, GUAM -- This was Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron-Two Five's second year participating in the Continental Airlines Plane Pull "Towing the Line to Save Lives." HSC-25's entry fees were donated by the HSC-25 Chief and Officers mess. The proceeds for this event went to the American Cancer Society. This year the event had a personal touch for the command. HSC-25 lost a very dear shipmate, SKC David Lee, to this disease last year. The team was comprised of 20 people that took third in the co-ed division with a time of 6.56 seconds. Also, for the second year in a row HSC-25 won the "Team Spirit Award." The "Team Spirit Award" was judged by a panel of cancer survivors on team creativity and originality during the parade of teams at the opening ceremony. The contest rules were simple but easier said than done: each team had two tries at towing a Continental Airline 737 airplane 12 feet. The team with the fastest time won. The awards were a bonus to this event, the real reward was the contribution to the fight against cancer.
