Dedicated to those Marines, and others, who served with Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 364
during their time in the Corps. This site represents the collective efforts of all
former members of HMM-364 who believe their history, and the part they played in conducting
aerial support missions should be preserved. In some cases the "PURPLE FOXES" relate,
with appropriate reverence and respect, incidents relative to their counterparts who did
not "come home alive". All who view this historical account of HMM-364 should appreciate
that a complete history of our squadron must contain information relative
to all of our former Marines and Navy Corpsman.
Further, it should be noted that HMM-364's illustrious legacy should not appear to diminish the
contributions of our other 'Marine Brothers,' be they aviation, ground or support units.
There existed at these times in our Marine Corps a great deal of mutual respect among all Marines
who endured the experience of war. Therefore, where possible, credit will be given to
individuals and units which were associated with developing this historical account of the
"Purple Foxes" to cultivate and promote the same Esprit De Corps which existed then and today.
Contributions to this site are respectfully requested which might cover, but not limited to,
subjects such as those listed in the 'Table of Contents' above and, we encourage submissions
from those Marines we supported.
