Mine Countermeasures Squadron Three (COMCMRON Three)
Mine Countermeasures Squadron Three is one of three deployable U.S. MCM staffs that conduct integrated MCM operations anywhere in the world. The Mine Countermeasures Squadrons serve as tactical MCM commanders, working directly with fleet commanders, as well as serving as immediate superior in command (ISIC) for their assigned MCMs and MHCs.
The staff is comprised of twenty-two Officers and enlisted Sailors from these MCM communities who meld their experience into a cohesive professional team. This integrated concept of mine countermeasures utilizes airborne, surface, and diving units in concert. Sharing the strengths of each component of this MCM triad through precise navigation systems, the total effectiveness of this team of airmen, seamen, and divers is far greater than the sum of it's individual components. Integrated MCM operations are conducted under the command of this staff whose focus is always on training, safety, and the development of tactics.
The squadron is comprised of MCM's and MHC's. Mine Countermeasures Squadron Three is a subordinate Command of Mine Warfare Command, Corpus Christi, TX. and homeported at U.S. Naval Station Ingleside, Ingleside, TX.
