HUGH JOHN WYNN, CDR, USN (RET)
Hugh J. Wynn, retired Commander in the United States Navy, passed away quietly in his home in Rosarito, Baja California, on Wednesday, August 1, 2012. Hugh was born in Visalia, California, on November 11, 1936 to Vernon and Georgianna Wynn. He attended the Stone Corral Elementary School his early years and from sixth grade through high school he attended Lindsay schools where he graduated from Lindsay High School in 1954. After College of the Sequoias and U.C. Berkley, Hugh graduated from Navy flight school in Pensacola, Florida, where he also met and married his wife Dian. Hugh served his country for twenty-seven years as an officer in the United States Navy; he was stationed in many parts of the world including Guam, the Mediterranean, Japan and Vietnam. While in Vietnam, Hugh was a member of the courageous Navy Seawolves that were commissioned and decommissioned in Vietnam, not known by many except by those that served and by the sailors and ground forces who owe their lives to their courage and devotion. Hugh was a pilot of a Helicopter Gunship and belonged to a squadron that flew 120,000 missions into the Mekong Delta, which in a year would average 600 missions per pilot. The Seawolves of HA(L) 3 (Helicopter Attack (Light) Three) is the only Navy Squadron to ever fly in combat and is the most decorated Navy Squadron in history.
