  • Where is everyone from HMH-462?

    Come on you guys. How many are going to Reno in July? Even if you aren't going, report in, so we can all re-unite. I can't believe we (462) is having such a poor showing. We had several hundred people pass through. Where are you now?

    Been there

    You are singing to the Choir here. I was on that theme before & some responded. I know from being with HMH-462 for 14 years on Okinawa, hundreds rotated through there. Guess most of them had been in a diffrent Sqd in Vietnam. We end up each year with 463 . SF PM

      Reno

      Great! I look forward to seeing/meeting you there. I'll be looking for you.

      Do you remember Sgt. Cruikshank? Do you know of his where-abouts?

        14 years

        John names after hundreds of Marines rotated thru Okinawa in 14 years lost me. I probably would recognize him if I saw him. In your case I recognize the picture but did not remember your name when I saw it. Being a mature 79 1/2 years probably adds to it. Look forward to seeing you and other in Jul. SF PM

          HMH-462

          In researching my military records I find that I was with 462 when we were at Marble Mountain and aboard ship in 1969-1970.

          I was in flight ops and went by the nickname GOHAN

            I am Bob Dagley (Sgt) and was with HMH-462 in Phu Bai in 68-69. I transferred to HML-367 with about 4 months left in country.
            I worked in the Maint. office and and was a gunner. It's hard to remember a lot of names but if I hear some maybe I'll remember.

              Hi all, I was in HMH462 from Mar 74 through Apr 75 during Eagle Pull and Frequent Wind...most folks just called me "Birdman" because I am a falconer. I was in the Metalshop on board the New Orleans and later the Oki Boat. Hung out with Danny Collup, Harry Cunningham, Dave Petronis, Crow, Tony Gonsalves and that bunch. Got out as a Sgt in Sept 75 at Santa Ana. Glad to see some familiar names on here...

                Hey folks, I served with the Screw Crew from 1988-1992. Deployed A & D Models to Okinowa Japan, Pusan Korea and Subic Bay Phillipines. In Aug. 1990 we broke the planes down at MCAS Tustin CA and loaded them onto C-5's and deployed to the Big Sandbox, where I spent about 8 months or so as a Gunner during the 1st Gulf War. I qualified as a crewchief in Saudi Arabia just before coming back home to Tustin. Shortly after returning from the war, we transitioned to the Echo's. They were pretty impressive, but I would take a A or a slick D over an E model any day. Would like to hear from any of the old crew.

                    One More 462 Vetran On Board

                    Served In The Screw Crew Several Times In The Late 70's, 80's And Early 90's. One Pcs Tour 77-78 And About 6 Udp's. Gulf War Vet As Well. I Remember Paul Moore, My Former Boss B.j. Sigman, And Ronny Wakefield. Some Of The Best Times Of My Life Being A Crew Chief And Helicopter Maintainer. I Too Am Suprised Not Much Response On This Squadron Board.

                      Rocky Panos, that's a name I haven't heard in a long time. Glad to see someone here from my time with the screw crew. Did you finally retire? This is Ronnie, in case ya didn't know. Any Idea if Stickman is still alive and kicking? Look forward to hearing from ya. Take care Gunny.

                          This is Rick McDaris. Steve (Stickman) and I were roomates for a few years while we were at Tustin. I spent a few years in 462. "83-"89 or thereabouts. The last I heard of Stick, he was living in the Jacksonville NC area and was married. I went back to Tustin in "91 after a tour at Parris Island. Steve came over to mine and my wife's apt. to eat one night before he retired. I'd love to hear from him too. Rocky gave me my first crew chief check ride after I reported to "the Screw" I wonder if the squadron still has "Screwman"?

                              Deuces

                              In 1964 I was assigned to HMH-462 out of 'A' School.
                              The base (LTA) was called MCAF Santa Ana at the time.
                              I don't recall all the names, but I recall Escotto, Omilak, Bratkowski, and I'll probably remember a few more after I send this!
                              I was with '462 again in '73-'74 aboard the 'Brokinawa and later the New Orleans.
                              I won't be able to attend the reunion this time due to a scheduling conflict:
                              I have to attend a family wedding and I don't have the shekels to cover both.
                              I'll be pleased to see everyone next time around!
