Was researching family history and came across your website. My father had given me pictures of my grandfather and his B-25 and I have read "Leatherneck Bombers". Seeing him and his crew on the website was truly exciting. I would be interested in learning or contacting any of his crew or squadron mates. Thanks.

My sister and I were playing on the internet just looking up our names on google image search. We looked up my name, Kenneth Beahm and came accross this web site. I was named after my grandfather and we saw his picture on this web site. Because he suffered from PTSD/Skizophrenia we don't know allot about what he went through. Now I can finally read a little bit about what he went through.

How often did the crew of a PBJ Mitchell have occasion to fire their guns at a Japanese fighter?

I'm interested in interviewing a PBJ gunner for a history article aimed at young readers that will appear in Marine Corps Times newspaper. The material used in the article may also contribute to a segment of a book in the future. The purpose is to share a little history with a new generation that hasn't previously been exposed to it.

I want to write about what like was like for a PBJ crew member. The purpose is not to glorify anyone, or even to focus on combat, but in order for the article to be consistent with other material I've published, I would like to find someone who actually fired guns in combat.

I'm grateful to be invited to the VMB-433 reunion in Memphis in October. This time, I hope to make it. However, I would like to write this gunner story sometime in the next very few weeks.

Can you suggest someone who would like to help me write about the life of a crew member on a PBJ?

Best wishes,

Bob
