    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.

    Hello; I'm looking for information about someone claiming combat air service with the USMC during Desert Storm.

    Could one of you please tell me which Marine Air organizations flew the C-130 in the Theater of Desert Shield and Desert Storm?

    More specifically, were there any "Spec Op" missions flown using USMC C-130 aircraft? Please excuse my ignorance on the topic. I'm asking because the gentleman making the claims says that he "flew SpecOp C-130s in Desert Storm", and did so as a "drafted" (his word) civilian commerical pilot.

    Believe me, I'm certain he did NOT, but I need to able to amass some proof of his dishonesty. He's a difficult target and simply challenging him with rational questions and arguments isn't cutting it.

    Thank you, and please excuse my intrusion into your thread.
