I was an aircrewman during Operation End Sweep. At the time I worked in the MCM (Ordenance ) shop rigging our planes with minesweeping gear at night and flying minesweeping missions during the day. I went home for 14 days on emergency leave and arrived back to the squadron in time to volunteer for our next campaign in Hyphong Harbor. Following End Sweep I deployed to the Med for Operations Nimbus Star and Nimbus Moon, clearing mines from the Suez Canal in 74 & 75.

I am the wife of AE Ron Fleeger. He was attached to HM-12 from 3/72 thru 5/75 and of course participated in the same operations..  We are looking for any and all shipmates we can find. We are particularly interested in any documentation that the unit had any Agent Orange Exposure. Like many vets he is suffering from one or more illness related to AO but we can't prove anything.. He also served in HS-3 during the late 60's
