Please contact me with any info or pictures from Shanghai China, Bombing Banshees. My father served with you and passed away in 1981. It is great to have the technology to contact anyone who knew my dad as a young adult since I was only 17 when he died. Thank you!

Thanks to the Webmaster for creating this site it is fantastic. My Dad was Corp. Gerard McGinnis. I found his logbook years ago and was fortunate enough to offer it for this website. I would love to hear from anyone having info about his service with 443 - like most veterans he did not talk much about it. If anyone has pictures please forawrd along I would love to share them with my siblings. Full respect to all veterans

My father Eugene C. McNew was an armorer gunner in the squadron. He seldom spoke of his war experiences and never revealed to Mom that his plane had crashed in the Pacific. I found it later in his flight log book.
Does anyone one have more information about it? He said they lost the tail gunner and copilot.
I am grateful for this site and will pass it on to his grandchildren.

Awesome website. My grandfather is Charles Harold Perry a Sergeant and tail-gunner. My dad sent me the link to this site. Really well done. Thanks for putting something up that allows me to explore the history of my family and as a tribute to those who served so we could be a free people.

Thanks.

Thank you for this great site. My Grandfather is Ernest Robbins of Dixfield Maine. He is 85 years young but acts like he is still in his teens. I can't wait to share this with him. Also would like to say thank you to all the Vets out there.

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.
