Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 312, the Checkerboard squadron, enjoys a fine reputation among Marine aviators. This volume, one of a new series of brief histories on famous aviation squadrons, is offered as a tribute to the pilots and crewmen who have contributed so significantly to Marine aviation. The author, Major William J. Sambito, earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Colby College, Maine, and is an experienced helicopter pilot who served with HMM 262 and -165 during the Vietnam War. After attending the Armed Forces Staff College, he was assigned in January 1975 to the History and Museums Division.
It is hoped that each of the brief accounts in this series will awaken a new interest in unit history and inspire Marines to retain important materials and record events of historical signifance. The Command Chronologies prepared semiannually are excellent vehicles for the accomplishmert of this. Important source documents and narrative accounts should be included in them to ensure that the entire story is told.
