Happy New Year!

I just received a 59-60 VMF(AW) 542 Far East Cruise Book from Mrs. Kathleen Phillips-Hellman the widow of Capt Robert Hellman. Capt Hellman was the Ordnance Officer during this tour.
Capt Hellman passed away in 2008. I also have received some other photos of Capt Hellman that I will be posting. If anyone knew Capt Hellman or anyone who might remember him please let me know.

For all you zippo collectors, I received Capt Hellman's well worn zippo with the squadron emblem and engraved with the locations billeted on the tour.

A great big thanks to Mrs. Phillips-Hellman for letting us preserve this little bit of our squadron history.

It is now posted at:

You can join the Army, you can join the Navy and you can join the Air Force but, you BECOME a Marine!
Having earned the title of Marine it becomes a integral part of who and what we will become later in life.
