Middletown Native Serves with Helicopter Squadron in San Diego
Monday, February 10, 2020 11:00:28 AM - Middletown Ohio

Sierra Wells

Petty Officer 3rd Class Sierra Wells, a native of Middletown, Ohio, joined the Navy because many of her family members had served in the armed forces. Now, four years later, Wells serves with Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 3, working with one of the Navy’s most advanced helicopters at Naval Air Station North Island, San Diego.

Wells is an aviation electronics technician who is responsible for testing, troubleshooting and repairing aircraft displays, radios, communication and crypto gear.

“I like that it is always busy, and I am always learning,” said Wells “It is always rewarding to get to see something from start to finish,” said Wells.

Wells is a 2015 Madison High School graduate. According to Wells, the values required to succeed in the Navy are similar to those found in Middletown.

“Being understanding that not everyone comes from the same walk of life is important,” said Wells.

With more than 90 percent of all trade traveling by sea, and 95 percent of the world’s international phone and internet traffic carried through fiber optic cables lying on the ocean floor, Navy officials continue to emphasize that the prosperity and security of the United States is directly linked to a strong and ready Navy.

Pilots and aircrew are trained in the squadron to fly MH-60S “Seahawk” helicopters to ensure they are prepared for peacetime and warfighting missions. Helicopters are equipped with the ability to conduct replenishments at sea, search and rescue missions and support other operations as needed.

According to Admiral Mike Gilday, the Chief of Naval Operations, the focus of today’s Navy is squarely on warfighting, warfighters and the capabilities needed for the Navy of the future.

“I am confident we will maximize the Navy we have today while delivering the Navy that our nation will rely upon tomorrow,” said Gilday. “And we will do so with urgency. Our fleet will be a potent, formidable force that competes around the world every day, deterring those who would challenge us while reassuring our allies and partners.”

There are many opportunities for sailors to earn recognition in their command, community and careers. Wells is most proud of becoming a leader and mentor on USS Carl Vinson for training.

“I helped with studying for exams and getting more troublesome electronics fixed,” said Wells.

For Wells, serving in the Navy is a tradition passed down from generations and one Wells hopes to continue.

“My dad, grandfather, great-grandfather and aunt all served,” said Wells. “I get to continue my family's honor of serving.”

As a member of the U.S. Navy, Wells, as well as other sailors, know they are a part of a service tradition providing unforgettable experiences through leadership development, world affairs and humanitarian assistance. Their efforts will have a lasting effect around the globe and for generations of sailors who will follow.

“Serving is an honorable thing to do,” said Wells. “We are the first response to many different situations and I feel that is not something a lot of people know.”
