US 67 ARRS Aug68-Aug70, I was stationed at Moron AB and was a C-130 jet mechanic who worked the flight line and did engine inspections in the hanger. On December 29, 1969, I started the drive to Bilboa, Spain. On December 30, I got on a 36 hour ferry to take us to Southampton, England. I arrived in Southampton at 6am, still dark. I had to adjust my car headlights to be able to drive on the left side of the road. Going through roundabouts was a real challenge. I reported to Woodbridge AB a day later. Funny story......our C-130s were replacing the F-4s. The engine run-up area had blast fences for the low slung F-4 engines. When we ran up our high-wing 130 engines, the prop wash blew everything that wasn't nailed down. SSGT.

US HMM-268 I am also a plank owner of HMM 268 from 2 March 1979 until October/November 1984 when I left to be a plank owner of HMH 466 (the Wolf Pack). I arrived as Cpl Hamm of flight equipment and left as a SSGT. I made the first three Okinawa deployments with the squadron as well as all the other first we accomplished. I saw the great officer frog hop at MCAS Yuma led by LtCol Bianchino as were were "not" being kicked of the base. I definitely remember everybody that has been mentioned on this post so far. There was lots of hard work and lots of great times that I remember from those years. I miss them sometimes. Semper Fi brothers and sisters (we had a few in the squadron) - US HMM-268 I am also a plank owner of HMM 268 from 2 March 1979 until October/November 1984 when I left to be a plank owner of HMH 466 (the Wolf Pack).
