Mid68-Dec70, I was with HMHT-301. I was there when we lost a great team of Marines on a test flight 20mar69. A group of us stood guard over the crash site as volunteers overnight. Still have dreams about that time. We had some of the best pilots. Later I served with them in Vietnam in 1971
1973-76, PFC Rick Evans HMT-301, S1 Worked for Staff Sargent Cooper and Lt Robert E Walton Jr. I heard he was killed trying to rescue the Iranian hostages - I was stationed there when they filmed the Hindenburg with George C Scott.
1975-77, I was the supply officer for this unit. Good unit, very safe, trained many new pilots P.A. Petre Lt USMCR Aviation Supply Officer 3060
1980-81, I was there when we had a 53 fall from the sky into the water and the aircrew swam away to fly that aircraft again. SGT David A. Keck
1980-1984 QA/CDI served with SGT Keck and was on sight for the incident at Dana Point. I have a lot of great memory's this was a great squadron. I worked with some real pros and the best Commanding Officers COL A. C. Blades SGT J.T. Derwin USMC
Aug94 I was the GSE rep and plank owner when we stood up HMT-301 again. I remember walking into the hangar, we had 5 birds CH-53D models and only 8 of up shop NCOIC's. A lot of work for us to stand up the squadron from scratch but it was well worth it. We trained some GREAT pilots for the fleet. Sgt R.T. Czajkowski (Ski)USMC/6072
