    flying circus

    this is really old but if you are still checking in now and then, i offer this non-help reply. i joined hmm-365 in california during the organization or the squadron. we only had three aircraft when i checked in. i made a mistake by admitting i could type and spent the next two months working in admin. we were not koler's klowns then but by the time we arrived incountry, we were koler's klowns. i suspect that cpl. brawn, from hydraulics, had a hand in it for he was our squadron illustrator. . one of my best buddies at the time chesiled the klown into the "hangar" cement floor very early in our deployment. i know this is not what you are looking for but maybe it will jiggle a few memory chips of someone else that knows more than i do.
