The HM-19 'Golden Bears' was a U.S. Navy Reserve MH-53E Sea Dragon helicopter mine countermeasures squadron (HELMINERON), formerly based at NAS Alameda, California, United States.

On November 5, 1994, this squadron integrated into HM-15 'Blackhawks', an active duty squadron. HM-19 was disestablished, and the merged squadron maintained the HM-15 designation. In 1995, NAS Alameda, California, United States was selected for closure by the Base Realignment and Closure commission, and subsequently, the permanent duty station of HM-15 moved to Naval Air Station Corpus Christi, Texas and then subsequently to Naval Station Norfolk, Virginia.
