    I was on the East Coast for 8 years 80-88, did three Med Cruise's and a NATO Cruise as a CH-53D Crew Chief. Went into the Reserves in New Orleans and became a UH-1N Crew Chief spent 7 years in the Reserves and the squadron was activated for the First Gulf War, Desert Storm. So anywhere the Marine Corps sends you would be great and enjoy the ride.....

    I revise my choice of Duty stations. I'd rather be on the East coast(Beaufort, S.C), or the sand box,Vietnam, any day of the week. More to do, and less to put up with. Semper Fi, and READY-APP.

    all good

    arin Dog, just curious. I crewed 46's, 41 years ago, and what is the modern Corps WTI in Yuma AZ today. It'd be the same whichever Bird you Crewed, I believe. Its a fact, North, east, South, West, or West Pac,(sand box), they are all good Duty Stations. Semper Fi, and READY-APP.

    Anywhere they send you is good when you're with other Marines; just different scenery to fly over. Stick around long enough and you'll see it all.

    Hmla-467

    Built the squadron with novembers and wiskies in July. Not sure when they will transition. Pendleton seems to have first choice since the training command has the aircraft. Bill McMillian

    do you know if theyre stickin novembers or yankees out there?
    467 has N's now.

    According to the latest Aviation Plan, this is the East Coast transition schedule:
    HML/A-567 activates FY2011 with UH-1N/AH-1W; starts transition to Y's during 1st Qtr FY 2012.
    HML/A-467 transitions 1st Qtr FY2013.
    HML/A-167 starts transition 4th Qtr 2013.
    HML/A-269 starts transition 1st Qtr FY 2014.
    First East Coast squadron starts transition at the same time as last West Coast squadron (HMLA-469).

    Home is where the Marine Corps sends you. At least that's what it says on a plaque I have.
