With the upswing of the Vietnam War, VMO-5 was reactivated on December 15, 1966, at Camp Pendleton and assigned to Marine Helicopter Training Group 30, 3d Marine Aircraft Wing. The aircraft assigned were the UH-1E "Huey" and the OV-10 "Bronco." In July 1967, VMO-5 was reassigned to Marine Aircraft Group 56. The squadron was redesignated HML-267 in March 1968 and remained in combat readiness for the remainder of the war. In November 1971 the squadron was reorganized, resulting in HML-267 flying only UH-1E aircraft.

Designed to meet a US Army requirement for a medical evacuation (MEDEVAC) and general utility helicopter, the UH-1 Huey was first flown on October 20, 1956. Nicknamed "Huey" because of its original "HU-1" designation, this aircraft became famous during the Vietnam War, where 7,000 of them served in a variety of roles, from MEDEVAC and search and rescue to troop transport, air assault and ground attack. As a troop transporter, the Huey revolutionized warfare, giving the Army the ability to strategically position troops in various locations that were otherwise difficult to reach in the heavy jungle environment.
