Col. Daniel A. "Slim" Sommerville

"HMM-364 is a great outfit.  The name of the game has been pure professionalism and outstanding combat qualification.  The men of this squadron are the finest combat Marines of our Corps today.  You produced a most enviable result in all things undertaken.  You have unbeatable team spirit and the guts and know how to shine among your contemporaries."

"I have been very proud to serve with you as a member of the team and would be proud to serve with any of you again under any circumstances."

"Well done Marines."
