The Sikorsky Helicopter Company initially developed the H-3 for the Navy from which the Air Force developed a general-purpose version designated the CH-3E. Some of these were converted to HH-3E "Jolly Green Giants" for the Aerospace Rescue and Recovery Service and were used throughout Southeast Asia for rescue operations. Special Operations Forces also used the HH-3E in combat operations throughout the region. This aircraft carried a crew of two or three and up to 30 troops or 15 stretchers. The 1 SOW received its first CH-3Es on 13 March 1973, and they saw service at Hurlburt Field until September 1980, when they were replaced by the larger HH-53H. This aircraft was installed in the Air Park and dedicated in May 1992.
