Daniel Eubank service

Squadrons that Daniel D. Eubank flew in

February 24, 2010

VT-6 was my first squadron assignment at Naval Flight School.  My primary flight training in the T-28C Trojan was at NAS Whiting Field in Milton, FL.

I was selected for the jet pipeline in primary flight and reported to VT-4 NAS Pensacola, FL  for Basic Jet Training in the T-2C Buckeye and Advanced Jet Training in the TA-4J Skyhawk.

After designation as a Naval Aviator in November 1979, I reported into the Repacement Air Group (RAG) VMAT-102 in Yuma, AZ for training in the A-4M Skyhawk.

After completing training in the RAG, I reported to VMA-311 at El Toro MCAS, CA  for flight duty.  We flew the A-4M Skyhawk.

I was assigned to S-3 operations in (Headquarters and Maintenance Squadron) H&MS-13, flying the OA-4M Skyhawk aircraft at MCAS El Toro, CA.

This photo was taken in 1977 after graduation from The Basic School, in C Company 1st Platoon.  This was the first Basic School Class that integrated women marines (WMs) into the platoons during Basic School training.  As a humorous side note, this Basic School company was sometimes referred to as ‘Charlene’ Company due to the integration of WMs into the training process.
