Welcome to the team!

Congratulations on your orders to join the COMHELMARSTRIKEWINGLANT Staff, which exercises administrative and operational control over 11 subordinate commands within Naval Station Mayport, Florida and Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Florida. These commands play a major role in the accomplishment of the Navy’s Maritime Dominance Mission.  The COMHELMARSTRIKEWINGLANT staff is focused on preparing combat-ready HSM squadrons and detachments for Fleet and Combatant Commanders.
All personnel, married or single, who receive orders to COMHELMARSTRIKEWINGLANT should have an assigned sponsor to assist them. Your sponsor will offer all necessary assistance to make your move as smooth as possible. However, it is your duty to communicate with your sponsor to let him or her know your needs and arrival date. If you have not received notification of the name and address of your sponsor, contact the CHSMWL Command Master Chief.
The Naval Station Mayport web site provides information regarding general base information such as housing and other services that are available.
We look forward to welcoming you to the staff.  Do not hesitate to contact us if you need any further assistance.
NOTE:  Check in with the Housing Referral Office prior to negotiating for off-base housing.  Refer to OPNAVINST 1754.2 for guidance on the Exceptional Family Member (EFM) Program, if applicable.



Deploy Combat Ready Detachments . . . Grow Leaders
     Helicopter Maritime Strike Wing Atlantic (HSMWL) is an operational and administrative Type Wing composed of the Wing Staff, the east coast MH-60R Fleet Replacement Squadron, two Expeditionary squadrons, three Carrier Air Wing squadrons, one Reserve squadron, the Helicopter Maritime Strike Weapons School Atlantic, the Surface Rescue Swimmer School, and a Carrier Tactical Support Center.
     HSMWL is responsible for all aspects of manning, material readiness and type training of the units assigned when shore-based, and as appropriate when they are deployed. Although this basic responsibility extends throughout the employment cycle of individual squadrons and detachments, direct management control is normally exercised only when these units are homeported.
    The unit is assigned permanent duty at Naval Station, Mayport, FL. The HSMWL Commander is also responsible for the production and logistics efforts of the Aviation Support Detachment Mayport. This activity supports the HSM Community's Maintenance and Supply requirements.
