Statement from the Commandant of the Marine Corps, General David H. Berger:

"It is with extremely heavy hearts that we learned several Marines and other service members were killed and wounded in the Kabul attacks today. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families as they are notified of this devastating loss.

These fallen heroes answered the call to go into harm’s way to do the honorable work of helping others. We are proud of their service and deeply saddened by their loss. As we mourn, we also keep those who are still over there protecting Americans and our Afghan partners at the forefront of our thoughts. Our Marines will continue the mission, carrying on our Corps’ legacy of always standing ready to meet the challenges of every extraordinary task our Nation requires of her Marines.

I am continually humbled by the courage and warrior spirit exhibited every day by Marines across the globe. The sacrifices Marines make on behalf of freedom must never go unnoticed or unappreciated. I ask that you keep these Marines and service members, and especially their families, in your thoughts and prayers."

Congratulations to Sergeant Calan Sapp on earning the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal for his actions as a crew chief during a fast rope evolution turned emergency. Your calm and cool-headed professionalism saved the life of a Marine who could have been seriously injured or worse. The Marine exited the helicopter at a high rate of speed causing him to slip and become hung upside down on the rope by his ankle 50 feet above the deck. Sergeant Sapp remained calm and provided critical information to lower the hung Marine safely to the deck. The Hammerheads are proud to call you one of our own.

The Hammerheads deployed to Okinawa have really hit their stride in the last couple of weeks! Launched half of the barn three days in a row achieving mission skills of Ground Threat Reaction, Aerial Gunnery, External Lift with CLB-31, and Helicopter Air to Air Refueling with the Sumos! (VMGR-152) They did all this thanks to the hard work of our Maintenance Marines keeping our aircraft flying including a full engine replacement. To top it off the Hammerheads have a new NCO in Cpl Lustfield, Bravo Zulu to his great achievement! The Hammerheads then finished the week off aiding in simulated mass CASEVAC drills. The Hammerheads are working hard and proving themselves ready and able to aid the MAGTF Commander throughout the Pacific! Well done and keep up the fight!

MCB Camp Lejeune and MCAS New River can expect to experience on base retail fuel shortages similar to those experienced in the greater Onslow County area for the foreseeable future. The high demand is leading to long lines and rapid sell outs.

MCCS is receiving reduced deliveries of fuel for retail stores. Types and quantities delivered will vary. Please be patient. Expect long lines. Do not block entrances and exits while in line. Please ensure you leave room for emergency vehicles. Patrons should not bring fuel cans to the pumps.

The G-4 does not currently forecast a shortage of fuel for official DOD and tactical vehicles (distributed from fuel farms).

Personnel with questions on telework options or leave should contact their respective chain of command for guidance.

I am getting a major kick out of knowing my son is in Yuma! Assigned to MAWTS-1 for WTI! Back in May of 78, I reported for duty at MAWTS! I was the first enlisted member below the rank of Sargent to join MAWTS! 117 degrees when I stepped off the plane in Yuma!
Last week at the former NAS Brunswick Maine. Great to see and hear!
I was Blessed to spend a little time last night with some fellow Marines out of MCAS New River, N.C., my last duty station, at Stars & Stripes. These dedicated warriors are with HMH-366(Helicopter Marine Heavy) "The Hammerheads," attached to MAG-29. Flying the Sikorsky CH-53E, the largest rotor aircraft in the western world, they have been training in our beautiful state for the past week. Thank You to Brad Nadeau, Nancy Nadeau and the entire Stars & Stripes "family" for being great hosts to these Devil Dogs. Semper Fi Marines, Safe Travels for your return to New River today. Semper Fidelis. 🙏🇺🇸❤️(God,Country,Corps).
Thank you for making my boy’s day today!!
Enjoying watching HMH-366 CH53s in Brunswick Maine this week . Thank you all your service!
Does 366 have a store online to buy merch like shirts, patches, coins, etc?
I need some help from my hammerhead moms and dads! My son is a hammerhead and he is getting married on July 10th. However, the schedule has him doing guard duty the 9th. Not blaming them at all. It’s the way the ball bounces. But I will offer $100 for any one who can swap with him. I’m not a rich guy so I hope this will entice someone to help a Marine Brother out! Please pass this along! Looking for a Marine miracle here! It is probably a corporal of the guard type but who knows! Help out and make a quick buck. Thank you so much
Our Hammer Heads about to secure for a well deserved holiday! Hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th of July! 🦅🌎⚓️ Semper Fi!
Congrats to HMH366’s newest Corporals of Marines. Cpl Shaw and Cpl Walker 🦅🌎⚓️
4 years ago the last flight in Afghanistan.
Huge thanks to our FRO and the Hammerhead Volunteers for decorating the barracks in the Holiday spirit! Lots of homemade cookies and goodness for our HMH-366 Marines
My son Hunter Smith, reported in last Tuesday! He is really excited to be with the Hammerheads! From an old Marine, Semper Fi!
