I found this website to be amazing. I grew up in Walnut Ridge, Arkansas and I knew about the Base there. I never knew that there was one in Newport, Arkansas. I found the information and photos fascinating. I have a page on Facebook called Arkansas & Missouri History. I shared much of your information with the group. I included your website and I hope others will check out your site. Thank you so much for this History lesson about part of Arkansas.

My Great Grandfather, Wayne Huey, was a metalworker in the squad, and I am proud to say that I have followed in his footsteps and enlisted in the USMC back in January, Semper go to those who passed and those still fighting today.

It is with a heavy heart that I have to inform you one of you has passed to the great beyond. John M. Roberson Sgt.Major USMCR Ret. passed on 30 Oct. 2016 at the age of 93. John was proud of his service in the USMC and to me from time to time about Kwajalein as I have been there myself in the 1980's. John was Sgt. John M. Roberson and was a Turret Mechanic while assigned to VMB 613.

John's family and friends are proud of his service to this nation and better for knowing him.

Kind Regards and Semper Fi to all of you.

It is with great sadness that I report the passing of a VMB-613 member, Col. Vernon H. Beggs. He died on September 18th, 2016 at the age of 98. He and his family were always proud of his service during WW II and the years since. He was a fine man, good husband and father and loved by many.

My father in law Salvadore "sam" Bordonali passed away Jan 1, 2015.
We knew Sam served in the Marine Corps in WW2 but since he never discussed it we never knew and still don't know exactly what his wartime experiences were. About the only thing we knew was he spent months on "a slow boat to China". After the war Sam lived out The American Dream becoming a senior pilot at United Airlines for 33 years, growing a large family and becoming endeared to everyone he met. Sam was a proud Marine.

I would like to inform fellow marines that my father William Randall "Randy" Clow passed away November 14, 2015. He was 91. He was one tough marine to make it through a lot in the last few years...but he did it with grace and fortitude. He will always be my hero. I will always hear his words of wisdom and call upon the values he instilled in me the rest of my life. So proud of you...proud to be your daughter. Thank you for being proud of me too.
