To the Webmaster: Robert, you have done a remarkable job. I see this bit of history is well organized, through and professional. I hope the person that bought the two 613 chairs enjoys them.
Semper Fidelis.
Maintain Marine.
Cordially,

Shared Falalop Island, Ulithi Atoll with MAG45. I still owe them a battery hydrometer which I used for my aircraft battery locker on the east side of the strip. CASU(F)51 Semper Fi to you Jarheads.

This is a terrific website, one that honors and commemorates the magnificent contributions of Marine Aviation in the Pacific during WW2. Well done!

My father, David Snider, was the photographer on a plane piloted by Lieutenent Love that was shot down on Ponape Island February 6, 1945. I was just alerted to this wonderful website. The only information we were sent says he was buried on Ponape Island. I do not know the history of how his body was found and why he was buried in New Jersey. I would greatly appreciate any information, photos, or stories. Thank you.

I am the oldest son of Donald R Taft, a Staff Sargeant with the Hunt-Griffith Crew. This country was built on the backs of men like my father and his fellow Marines. While he is deceased, I still remain incredibally proud of him as a man, a father, a husband and a military man (Marine). I served (US Navy) in 67 and 68 and hope that I can be somewhat deserving of the honor, integrity and respect my father earned as a Marine. Thank God for him, our service persons and God bless the United States of America, the greatest country on earth.

My father, Robert C. Woten, who was the 1st Commanding Officer of this squadron, is alive and well at 93. We live in NW Washington state. We have gone to 3 MC Birthday Balls at Whidbey Island, WA in the last 7 years.

Anyone wanting to contact my Dad can use my email. He remembers Jim Cunningham very well.

Semper Fi!!

I am looking for anyone who was in a group going from Pearl Harbor to the Kwajalein Islands on 1-26-1945. I have a One Dollar bill that was signed by the group and would love to give it to someone who was in this group or hear some stories about it. Some of the names on the dollar are: R.C. Barnett Master Sergent U.S.M.C.
R.O. Evans, A.N. Van Deusen, L.J. Manbury, Harold Segal, William Donnell, J.E. Hayer (s?), R. Stephans Jr., O. Jennings, R. Baines. There are 16 names total, but some of them I can't read very well. It also has the latitude and longitude written on the dollar. Please e-mail me at mona111@msn.com. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
