    CO's VMO Squadrons

    When I returned from Vietnam in 1969, I was the ALO with 2nd Field Arty Group, ForTrps and flew with VMO at New River. The CO was LtCol "Tank" Meyers and Maj Brown was the XO. We had OV-10's and Hueys and as I was leaving in May 1971 we were obtaining the "N" model Huey and Cobras. I did not see LtCol Meyers name anywhere on that list either!

        VMM-263 CO 's

        I don't know the exact date that he assumed command, but LTCOL Paul J. Rock Jr. was the first commanding officer of VMM-263. At that time LTCOL Ryan was the XO.
