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.

I am SO glad to find this site.
My father was a mechanic on the B-25. I still have all his tech manuals and the leather case.
He has been dead now for about 35 years.
I have HUGE respect for all military personnel, whatever their service or responsibilty.
May GOD bless our military personnel and soon see and end to this war in the Middle East.
GOD BLESS OUR MILITARY!

I believe my father in law, Sgt. Trevor Jones, who served as a navigator-bombardier in Mitchell bombers in USMC South Pacific, was with 443. Can anyone out there confirm that he was a member of this unit? Was there a unit known as "Fighting 33"?

This a great Web Page. I was in the Squadron and the WebMaster has done a wonderful job of depicting our activities. The pictures that have been scanned in are very typical of what it was like. This brought back many memories.

My Dad, Thomas J. Dumas, was a lineman in the Marines in VMB-443. He is still working his farm and is interested in contacting anyone from his old crew. Tim

Thanks so much to those responsible for this wonderful tribute to our fathers, uncles and brothers. My dad was Captain Harry Gorman. I have his squadron book and flight logbooks, so please feel free to contact me if I can help anyone with research. Mr. Yirka, it looks like our dads flew together.
