VMFN513, I was stationed at MCAS Edenton in 58. I was not airwing, I was FMF but I was awaiting discharge and they put me in the electric shop there, I got out in Oct 58 and I seem to remember they were closing the base.

I was in VMFA 251 Thunderbolts in 81', they were still F-4's. I was in the Hyd Shop ( hated the "hell hole", trying to get a wrench in the vertical stab to take out the actuator, and couldn't see the bolts. I could fit inside there back then... some what. ) Left there and went to Pax river (Naval Air Test Center) and was the first Marine to leave STRIKE Hangar to venture over to the "Secretive McDonald Douglas Hangar" to work on the new Pre-Production F-18 Hornet. I was attached to M.A.D. Pax. Gunny Leckemby anyone? Great marine. Then volunteered for the Drill Field. The F-4's at Beaufort were replaced with F-18's around 86' 87'. Man, that is a sweet bird. Went to El Toro in 88'.

Wow! I never thought I'd see this many "Wingers" crawling out of the woodwork. I was a Hyd Mech with VMFA-312 (83-86) VMFA-112 (86-91) VMFA-122 (91-93) and VMFA (AW)-332 from 93-95. Joined the California National Guard in '98 and somehow wound up as the S-4 NCO for a Special Forces unit. (Just got back from Iraq in May.)
I was digging through my war chest the other day and actually came across the photos that were used to put together the Cruise Book from the 84-85 West-Pac. How I wound up with them I will never know, I just wish I could remember the names of the people in the bloody pictures...
Anyway, Semper Fi
