    East or West?

    You'll end up going where they need you an the time. I was an East coast guy and requested New River after Viet Nam, figuring it would be a slam dunk for a CH-46 guy and I'd be close to home...Guess what? I was sent to LTA Santa Ana/Tustin. I was pissed at the time, but it turned out to be one of the best things that ever happened to me. Either way you'll serve with good Marines. Just salute and say Aye-aye sir!

      The plan that I read last year was west coast would retire the Novembers 2012 and east coast 2014. All is dependent on Y deliveries and if the moon and stars align

                    467 has N's now.

                    According to the latest Aviation Plan, this is the East Coast transition schedule:
                    HML/A-567 activates FY2011 with UH-1N/AH-1W; starts transition to Y's during 1st Qtr FY 2012.
                    HML/A-467 transitions 1st Qtr FY2013.
                    HML/A-167 starts transition 4th Qtr 2013.
                    HML/A-269 starts transition 1st Qtr FY 2014.
                    First East Coast squadron starts transition at the same time as last West Coast squadron (HMLA-469).

                      Built the squadron with novembers and wiskies in July. Not sure when they will transition. Pendleton seems to have first choice since the training command has the aircraft. Bill McMillian

                          Anywhere they send you is good when you're with other Marines; just different scenery to fly over. Stick around long enough and you'll see it all.
