Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 165
White Knights, tail code YW was formed July 1st, 1965. On 2011 they transitioned to the MV-22 Osprey tilt-rotor and is redesignated VMM-165



I served with HMM-165 from Jan to Dec 1973 ( Operation End Sweep ) as a CH-53 Crew Chief aboard 4 LPHs in the Gulf of Tonkin, South China Sea and Haiphong Harbor doing MCM Ops. Quite a Helo. We used to have over 30 man hours of maintenance per flite hour! Never seen much info on these MCM ops. Steve Eaton. Semper Fi
Dont forget we were also the Hawaiian Warriors from 1977-1980...
