SQUADRON LOG BOOK





COMMENTS:
Hello,
My father, Staff Sergeant Frank S. Gricus (now deceased)served in VMB 443 MAG 61. As he would never talk about his war time service the information I have on his service in the South Pacific was gleaned from his service records. He shipped to New Hebrides on the M.S Brastagi on 18 May 1944 and returned from the Philipines to San Diego on 6 Nov 1945 on U.S.S. Jerauld. From what I can gather he was an armorer (Ordn 911). I would like to hear from anyone that knew my dad during his time in the Marines.

I am one of sons of Henry Houston Shoemaker. He is pictured on page 72, bottom picture, sitting fourth from the right with a hat in his lap in "The Seahorse." I would love to hear from anyone that served with my father during World War II. He is deceased. We have an original copy of the SeaHorse.

I am the daughter of T/Sgt. D. W. Harry, Jr who was the top turret gunner of a PBJ Mitchell for bombing squadron VMB 443. Dad is still alive and well at the tender young age of 85 and we share an apartment here in Riverton. I know he would appreciate hearing from anyone who has knowledge of VMB 443 or any fellow Marine. Also, my son, Sgt. James R. Wood has recently returned home safe and sound after serving 8+ years in the Corps.
Eager to hear from anyone...
Semper Fi....

p.s., I will be suppling the "original" squadron book here on the site with the assistance of Robert Yanacek.
