The squadron, previously Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 262, was redesignated to reflect the replacement of the squadron's CH-46E Sea Knight helicopters with MV-22B Osprey tiltrotor aircraft. “As we begin the next chapter and continue our transition from good to great, how we do things will continue to change, but why we do them and who we are shall remain,” said Brown during the ceremony. VMM-262 is a part of Marine Aircraft Group 36, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, III MEF. Brown is the commanding officer of VMM-262.
