H&MS-31 OMD group photograph. Remarks from Doug Bowman SSGT USMC (Retired); This picture had to have been taken in mid-summer 1984 because it is on the section of the flight line adjacent to the new maintenance building at MCAS Beaufort, SC. That is the VMFA-451 hanger in the background". Who can name these guys? Please e-mail the webmaster@a4skyhawk.org . Picture from SSgt Randy Toskin, USMC.
