He ("Chu Lai") must have been in either MAG-12(-) or MAG-13(-). Both of them are fixed-wing groups. Most of the Marines and Corpsmen I knew were in choppers.

lST MAW HQ - Iwakuni Japan, Chief Legal Clerk, working as court-reporter and assigning reporters to trials. Coordinated paper work from Provost Marshall to our Hqs then to the respective units. From Oct 1964 to Nov 1965 then transferred to Quantico Va for 4 months to end of enlistment, 4 years and 8 months active duty. Best duty station ever!
1st MAW went to DaNang a couple of months before I was transferred to States. I was one left behind to keep legal office open on the base during this period with a couple of legal officers to keep things going.
