 H&MS-39, MAG-39 Details

H&MS-39, MAG-39
Provisional H&MS-39, which operated in Quang Tri from April 1968 to October 1969, was reactivated at Camp Pendleton, California on September 1, 1978 to provide support for the UH-1 Huey and AH-1 Cobra helicopters and the OV-10 Bronco.

The squadron was redesignated on October 1, 1988 as Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron 39 (MALS-39) and still exists to provide aviation supply and intermediate aircraft maintenance, avionics, and ordnance support for six flying squadrons. MALS-39 did not operate any of their own OV-10s, as they provide an intermediate level maintenance facility for the flying squadrons.

The squadron patch from the era does feature an OV-10 on it.
