59-60 VMF(AW) 542 Far East Cruise Book

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.

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.
