I've been digging into some research on the PBJ-1Js used by the various units during the war. Major problem is matching the squadron aircraft numbers such as 404, 410 etc to the BUNO. Anyone have a cross reference of the squadron numbers to the actual BUNO of these late model PBJ-1Js used by VMB443. Thanks

Hello

I am the grandson on Franklin Demilt who served in the squadron in WWII. My grandfather died in 1972 when I was only 2 years old. I was wondering if anybody had any information or maybe a picture that they could share with me.

Thank You,

Mark Woods

My Dad was Frank Greenan and was a turret gunner on a PBJ. He really didn't speak much about the war but did mention the places he was in the USMC. He was proud to be a Marine. Any photos or additional information would be appreciated

My nephew, Sgt. Matt Cowell, is the grandson of Capt. William E. Booth. He just picked up a cigarette holder on eBay that has the Marine insignia and reads "USMCAS Officers' Mess Cherry Point, NC". Does anyone recognize this item?

Hello,
My Grandfather was a pilot in VMB-443, 2ndLt Stone, Edgar J. I am very grateful for this website to commemorate all the sacrifices these brave Marines made. My grandfather eventually retired from the Marine Corps Reserves having obtained the rank of Colonel. I Proudly carry on their sacrifices through my service today here in Afghanistan. I am serving currently with Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 462. I am on my second deployment to Afghanistan and have previously deployed twice to Iraq in 2004 and 2005-06. I also deployed to Okinawa from July of 2002 to July of 2003, and as a crew chief, I got to see a lot of the islands throughout the south Pacific where these Marines flew over. Thank You again for the website.
