Hazardous Missions in the Indian Ocean A CH-46 prepares to hook-up to an external load as part of a vertical replenishment mission assigned to HMM-165, while serving aboard the USS Tripoli somewhere in the Indian Ocean. There were no routine activities associated with a CH-46 squadron during these times and in this theater of operation. During this month HMM-165 lost seven crew members while they served their country.
