HSM-72 Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron Seven-Two, also known as Proud Warriors is a helicopter squadron of the United States Navy based at Naval Air Station Jacksonville. The Proud Warriors are a part of Carrier Air Wing Seven and deploy aboard the USS Harry S. Truman (CVN-75).
HSM-72 was established on 15 January 2013 at Naval Air Station Jacksonville, when the squadron was re-designated HSM-72 from their previous designation of Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron Light Four Two (HSL-42). The change reflected their transition from employing the SH-60B to the MH-60R, as well as from a detachment-based, expeditionary squadron to its realignment in support of a carrier air wing. As part of this transition, then-HSL-42 relocated to NAS Jacksonville from their previous home of Naval Station Mayport.
