Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 773

About 110 members of Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 773, headquartered at Robins, completed a two-mile formation run Nov. 5. “We have been making this an annual tradition here,” said Lt. Col. David Steele, Marine Aircraft Group 49 Detachment A commander. The run was held just days prior to the 238th birthday of the Marine Corps on Nov. 10. The “Red Dogs” of HMLA-773 is one of three units; the others are located in Louisiana and New Jersey. The squadron includes AH-1W Super Cobra attack helicopters and UH-1N Huey utility helicopters which perform close air support functions stateside and overseas. HMLA-773, the Marine Corps Reserves’ only attack helicopter squadron, falls under the command of MAG 49. Both units relocated to Robins in 2010. (U.S. Air Force photo by Ray Crayton)
