VMO-8 was a reserve squadron that carried the tail code 5L initally, later using the code QN. VMO-8 got their first Bronco in February 1969 and were deactivated in July 1976. H&MS-11 operated four OV-10As from March to May 1971. H&MS-24 operated OV-10s from MCAS Kanohe Bay, HI.

Provisional H&MS-39, which operated in Quang Tri from April 1968 to October 1969, was reactivated at Camp Pendleton, California on September 1, 1978 to provide support for the UH-1 Huey and AH-1 Cobra helicopters and the OV-10 Bronco. The squadron was redesignated on October 1, 1988 as Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron 39 (MALS-39) and still exists to provide aviation supply and intermediate aircraft maintenance, avionics, and ordnance support for six flying squadrons. MALS-39 did not operate any of their own OV-10s, as they provide an intermediate level maintenance facility for the flying squadrons. The squadron patch from the era does feature an OV-10 on it.
