587th Transportation Company (Light Helicopter) Guidon

Recommended Posts

This is a weird one. From what I can piece together, the 587th was an army helicopter unit that was assigned to and operated from a navy carrier, the USS Corregidor (CVE-58). They were carried on this ship while it was stationed in Bremerhaven Germany in the early part of 1956. The unit was dissolved after a short period of time. Below is a photo of the guidon, and a unit picture from another company showing this style of guidon and the helicopters that it employed.






I like guidon flags. They're my bag, baby.
