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.

Thank you for this site. My father, Robert T. Slater served with VMB-443
as a SSgt. armorer but I think he may have been in radar also. He and
my mother met in El Centro where she was stationed as a Women Marine.
They got together at Mira Mar MCAS after VJ day and both left the Corp.
A bit later, I came along and Dad went back in to the Marines. Dad
went on to serve China, Korea,and Vietnam and retired as a WO-3 in the late 60's. They are both gone now but I remain so very proud of their part
in serving and defending our country. I have a copy of "Leatherneck Bombers" but I could not find SSgt. Slater in any of the photos. Any help
in this search would be appreciated
