HMM-164
Oct91-Jun02, I served with HMM-164 and HMM(T)-164. Then as a civilian contractor Mar11-Feb14. I am very proud of my time in HMM-164 and it was a great squadron. A lot of memories and most all are positive. I do know of 1 Marine that served a longer unbroken term than I did but I don't think he has the total time as I do. I guess I got that going for me! Oh, and I was a maintenance controller and signed the ADB on 152562 countless times. Also worked on it as a flight line mechanic. All 46's are special and are sorely missed. BD GySgt Ret.
