RESERVISTS SUPPORTING RESERVISTS
The story here is that HMH-772, the Marine Forces Reserve's only CH-53 squadron had a -53 heading from Yuma, AZ after supporting a WTI course back home to McGuire AFB in New Jersey when it had a part go wonky in Texas(I think it was the auxiliary power plant used to start the aircraft). Needing to get the part out to Texas to swap it with the broken one and get some Marines back home in time for work the next day (they are after all Reservists with civilian jobs), the leadership at HMH-772 called their friends at VMGR-452, the reservist KC-130T squadron out of Stewart ANGB in New York to see if they could send a Herk to pick up the part and a few active-duty crew and fly them to Texas, and then haul the reservists stranded in Texas home so they can make it to work the next day. The 'Yankees' at -452 said 'Yes,' and a few hours later '999' shows up on the ramp at McGuire, keeps the engines running while some -772 guys load the part and themselves onto the aircraft, and is wheels-up within ten minutes. Fast, efficient, and professional. And it wasn't even on a weekend.
