Official Word

HMLA 567 Here we come!
We heard yesterday that it is official, Ben will be going to HMLA 567 this summer.

So this wasn't our first choice (for what to do next in Ben's career)but it seemed like the job kept turning back up in Ben's lap. It seems surreal that he was just starting at HMLA 467 and standing up it as a new squadron & now to have the opportunity to be in another brand new squadron from the beginning.

He will be leaving soon to go back to "school" to learn the newest advances to the Huey and then will return back to Cherry Point to instruct other huey pilots so they can transition over to the new aircraft.

Ben really wanted to fly the new huey before we retire (in another 11 to 12 years) so it is really great in that aspect! Not so much that it is still at Cherry Point which is quite a commute. We are so grateful for great friends that have offered up their house for Ben to stay at 2 or so nights a week to cut down on fuel costs, wear & tear on the car, and most importantly decrease Ben's fatigue.

We appreciate your continued prayers for us as of course additional training means more time apart plus more studying for Ben!
I attached really the only thing that I could google about 567 at this point. Obviously, it will be starting in 2011 instead of 2012 but I am not sure if they meant the real calendar year or their fiscal year. Stay tuned for more news!
Congratulations babers!!

Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 567


According to the Marine Corps Department of Aviation's FY10 Aviation Plan, HMLA-567 is scheduled to activate at Cherry Point during FY 2012, and then relocate to New River at a later date. HMLA-567 will initially serve as the East Coast Training Transition Unit for the UH-1Y/AH-1Z.
