I started with VMGR-252 in spring of 1967. I was initially assigned to the powerplant shop, but after surgery for appendicitis I was reassigned to the prop shop because of personnel shortages there.
During my time in the prop shop it was run by Gunney Toca, SSgt. Landolfi, and toward the end my tour by SSgt. Wasilowsky.
I spent a large amount of the time with 252 on second shift doing post flight inspection and repair of props, GTCs and ATMs.
