Here are PIX of my USMC M-Gator. When sanding the right bed side, I found markings that indicate that it was used by as a flight line gator by the HMLA-773 “Red Dog” attack helicopter squadron in Afghanistan. I understand that TF Red Dog (Task Force) was the name of the Afghanistan operation. A similar M-Gator can be seen on YouTube, listed as “Afghanistan HMLA-773 Summer 2004-1”.

Whenever we get a glimpse into the actual HISTORY and PROVENANCE of our MV's we gain a certain intimate connection with the machine as well as those who used them in noble military service.

Thanks for sharing this tidbit of her "exprience" with us. I hope that you will be preserving those "marks of battle" as you progress.

She's a good lookin' Gator.

I look forward to hearing more about her and what you do with her.
