I'm doing research for an article on USMC VMBs for an Italian amilitary magazine. This is the best website I have found on the subject. It has a wealth of information not available elsewhere. My thanks to and respect for the guys who make this site possible.

Excellent website. I'am an old friend of Technical Sergeant Marshall E. Suther Jr., trying to contact him many years ago.
If you visit this logbook please email me your electronic address,or a friend of Sgt. Suther tell him TIMMIE is trying to get contact with him. Any information is well received. Please help me to know about my friend Sgt. Suther.
Hugs and kisses.
Timmie Wiltshire.

You guys have no idea how excited I am. My father was Staff Sergeant William S. Semple. He talked a little bit about his time in the Marines, but I had no idea there was a website devoted to his squadron. Just a little background on myself, I'm a 27 year old airframe and powerplant mechanic, and I currently work in Milwaukee Wisconsin for Midwest Airlines. I can't tell you enough how honored I am to find this website, and how cool it is to learn about my father, and of your special squadron. If any of you members read this, PLEASE e-mail me back, I would love to meet some of you. Plus, I'm dieing to know which one of you was "Twitchy". Anyhoo, I would also like to know when you reunion is in 2008 because I would very much like to be there. Thanks again guys. SALUTE!!

What a great website!!! My Father, Dino J. Chaparas, was a member of this squadron. I never really spoke with him about his experiences in WWII before he passed at the early age of 44. It was a very strange coincidence that I even found this site, but am grateful for all of the wonderful information it contains. I finally am begining to get a grasp on my father's contributions while serving in the USMC.

Thank you for a great resource!

Tom Chaparas, SMSgt, USAF

I have been asked to view your site for the Talking Hands Quarterly Award. There are three other sites to view and vote for this quarter. Good Luck!

I really like the professional appearance of your site. Other WW2 squadron sites from all other countries should be as good as this one. It would be nice if you could please provide additional information about the T13E1 75mm Cannon. Is this weapon simply a lighter version of the M4 cannon of the B-25G, or is it a completely different weapon? What kind of ammunition did it use?

In early 1945, I spent 2 weeks on Kawajalein--supposed to be attending a school to learn how to maintain an R4D that MAG-14 was to get. Four other men and I had come from Peleliu for this schooling. Kawajalein never looked as good as your photos, but must admit that from 1800 until 1900 you could get all the beer you could drink, but you had to drink & pay for, but it was inside of a tent that was fenced in. Recall we got rid of our clothes except what we were wearing and filled our sea bags with beer to take back. Of course by the time we got back, a ship had come in and beer was available. I was the Leading Chief of a Flight Section. Semper Fi
