The high point of May 1950 for HMX-1 was Operation Packard IV, which took place during the final week of the month [May 28-31]. Six HRP–l's and two HO3S–1 helicopters landed on board the USS Mindoro (CVE–120) at Norfolk, Virginia, after which the ship sailed south to a point 15 miles off the coast of Camp Lejeune. The operation lasted only two days during which five HRPs and two HO3Ss carried ashore a total of 120 troops and over 20,000 pounds of cargo. As was the case in Operation CROSSOVER, the exercise afforded good training for the squadron although there were no new techniques of the amphibious assault exhibited. [56]
