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
