    Hey Boogieman, I know I'm the extreme boot of all that are here but I too was in Echo 2/3 from 96 to 00, different generation but we are all K-bay brethern.

    Can anyone here tell me if they were issued surfboards back then? Did I miss out on that?

    H&ms-24, Vmfa-212, Vmfa-235

    Hi I am another onewire from hams24 77-80. aka was Boo Boo. I was avi and deployed with 212 in summer of 78 and didnot want to do a winter in Japland so asked, begged, groveled to go in the summer of 79 with 235...NO! was the answer. Till about 3 days out I suprisingly got orders to move my files from 212 to 235. Had one hell of a time in Iwakuni. Stationed with some read good dogs from VMFA-333. Amixed batch of us went to Tokyo and topped Mt. Fuji, and cought an allday massave rock & roll consert near a beach & park.

    I was at K-Bay from '75-'79 Cryogenics section. We had the little white building next to the runway. Two unfortunate memories were both Hilo accidents. One next to the H&MS-24 hangar and one on the Big Island, Pohakuloa Training Area, where we had a crash that killed 7-8 marines. I flew back to Tripler on the helo that carried 2 surivors. I have often wondered and prayed that they survived. If anyone knows anything I would appreciate finding out.

    I was with MACS-2 from 87-90. We had the giant golf balls by Pyramid Rock. When I tell people where I was stationed they seem to have no understanding that there is a Marine base there.
    NICE TO HEAR OF SOMEONE ELSE STATIONED AT MACS-2 "THE DUECE". I WAS IN THE MOTOR POOL FROM 1984-1987. ALWAYS REMEMBER THOSE GOLF BALLS. ALSO REMEMBER GETTING CAUGHT AT THE AIR STRIP GATE. SOME TIMES FOR A WHILE. K-BAY WAS A GOOD DUTY STATION. I HAD FUN FOR SURE.

    H&ms-24 Marines

    I was assigned to H&MS-24 (Aviation Supply) from 82-86 but I deployed on WestPacs with HMM-265. I was also deployed to Okinawa at MCAS Futenma a few times with 265. K-Bay was awesome and the deployments were alot of work but evey young man should experience Olongapo PI!!!! I drove by K-Bay with my family on a vacation about 5 years ago. No more rows of Phrogs sitting outside the hangars. There were a couple of 53's and some P3's parked on the apron at the far end near hangar 105 but it still looked the same to me. Although I believe it is now designated as MCB Kaneohe Bay (Marine Corps Base). I have a ton of great memories from my time at K-Bay!
