Does anyone recall which squadrons were flying UH-34s out of Marble Mountain during the summer of '68?
I remember flying several missions as gunner on 34s during this period while I was assigned to H&MS-16. However, I've had no luck finding specific UH-34 squadrons at MMAF during this period.
After reviewing my military records on Wednesday, I learned that I earned my crew wings while flying with HMM-165 from July '68, through Dec '68 as a gunner. However, my recollection is that I flew exclusively in UH-34s during that period, not CH-46s which was the 165 aircraft.
In Apr '69 I was transferred to HMM-165 on my extension tour. However, I was transferred out (to HMM-263) at the end of Jul '69 when 165 was rotated back to Okinawa.
I'm still trying to reconcile my history in VietNam while I still can. The pieces are starting to fall together, but there are still some details that are missing. This forum has been a great help in pulling it all together.
