Gentlemen:

My dad(Lt. William R. Mallette),served in this unit,VMB-413,as a pilot flying the B-25 Mitchell on 48 combat missions from 1944-45, and I am so very proud to see his name listed among the other heroes in your personnel category! In viewing your personnel link with the photographs, I noticed no photo of him and I was just curious how I might be able to help in correcting this, assuming you don't have one in your files?

Awesome job posting this site! I was able to find a high school teacher from 35 years ago, since deceased, that once told me he was in the Marines during WW2 and served as a rear gunner.

His name is Hugh Penturf and he was a great role model to me and my good friend Rick.

If anybody on this site has some memory of him please advise. Hugh died back in 1998.

Great job on the site, was able to look up my brothers history, Roland Zanca, a proud member of the marines 413. Roland passed away several years ago and my family is interested in his enlistment during this Veterans Day, thank you.

It is with a heavy heart that I report the passing of my Father-in-Law Donald Wayne Young. He was a member of this unit in the South Pacific during WWII.

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!

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.
