I am a Captain with VMM-161 (formerly HMM-161, HMR(L)-161, HMR-161) at MCAS Miramar in San Diego. I have been with the squadron for close to five years, originally flying the CH-46 before transitioning to the MV-22. Over the last couple years, I have become the squadron's ad hoc historian, due mostly to the fact that I am fascinated with the squadron's past. Our squadron will celebrate it's 60th birthday next January 15th, and I am trying to put together something to commemorate the squadron's illustrious past. I have compiled quite a few photographs (even some old video) of the squadron but am always looking for more. I would like to exchange photos and/or information about the squadron's early days in Korea, SoCal, and Hawaii. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you for your time.
