My dad, Major Douglas H. Fenske, was a very proud Marine of the 413. I am sad to report that he passed away at 98 years of age on Nov.29, 2015. we attended many reunions, and I was fortunate to have met many of his friends,and was privileged to hear many stories.
Thank you, all of the servicemen and ALL of your families from the "Greatest Generation", those that have followed, and will follow.
Semper Fi from a very proud daughter!
Jeanette F. Kelly

This is an awesome website! Well researched and full of great information. My father, Albert Thomas Nevins (went by Tom) also known to his fellow pilots as "Nicely" was a First Lieutenant at the time and was assigned to the VMB 413 and eventually transferred to VMB 443 also at Emirau. I realize that many of our greatest generation are well into their 90's at this point, but I would love to hear from anyone who served with and remembers my dad. Unfortunately, he passed away at age 66 resulting from a bout with colon cancer that spread to his brain. He was always very fond of his time spent in the Marine Corps and even attended one of the VMB reunions in 1986, or 87 in Dallas, TX.

My father is Tom Bemis. He turns 94 this August. He had a letter with VMB-413 as the forwarding address which led me to this website and I can see his name here on the personnel list. Thank you for putting this together. Little confused however, because he only talked about being stationed in the Philippines and China but not near New Guinea.

I am brother of Sergeant Roderick F. Corvello, Gunner aboard PBJs who was a member of VMB-413 in 1944 until the end of WW2. Roderick (affectionately nicknamed "Buster" by family) graduated college following the war and reentered the Marine Corps as a pilot serving during the Koran War. Leaving the Corps, he was employed by Pan American Airways where he retired as a Captain. Buster passed away in 2010 and is interred at the Veterans Memorial Cemetery, Cape Cod.
