My father was T-Sgt Louis G. Smith Jr. amd served as navigator with the Fighting Wildcats, but only seldom spoke of the war with us. He passed on in 2000. Any comments?

I am a son of Roger A Stewart who was a second leutenant with this squadron. He went on to serve in Korea flying medivac and obvservation helicopters. After Korea, he stayed in the Marines and retired as a Colonel in 1966. He passed away in 1990. My son, Roger A Stewart III, found this website and I am so happy he did. It is amazing to see some of these photos. Some I have seen and have copies of. I have two brothers and a sister and I know they will also be excited to hear how you have documented this piece of history. I only wish my Dad could be here to see it. Thank you so much.

My Father was a radio machine - gunner in Squadron 443. He has passed away back in 1974. I still have a copy of the Squadron's history. Glad to see the website for 443.

Regards, Myron, Jr.

Thank you so much for putting this website together. I especially want to thank my cousin, Jason Coad, for finding this. As Jason mentioned in the post right before mine, our grandfather served in the Marine Bombing Squadron Four Forty-Three. We are very proud of his service. Jason has followed in his footsteps and I am extremely proud of him. I know my grandfather would be, too.
