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.

I am one of TSGT Al Wiechniak's many grandchildren. Unfortunately, my grandfather passed away before I was old enough to learn about his service in World War II. If anyone served with him, I would love to take the time to talk with you at some point.

Thank you for everything that each of you has given to our Nation,

Dan

Grandpa Stump was a corporal, and turret gunner.

I have in front of me, Grandpa Stumps' Service Album, and his log book. His service album has in it, MANY images taken during his service. They span from training, on through to the end of the war. There are lots of images of buds, from training days, on through, and many were taken at camp, where he was stationed (Mindanao, I believe, most of the time) I would like to share these images with the site, or whomever would like some digital copies. (If you knew grandpa, or someone close to you did, give me a name, and I'll see what I've got. Many images have the last names of each guy, written on the border of the image. Also, if you have any stories that involve grandpa, I would love to hear them. Grandpa Stump is no longer with us. As some of you may know, he passed away in 1994. The last 413 re-union he made was in 93, the year before he passed. But grandma is still with us (Just turned 88, first of the year) and I know she would love to hear back from anyone who may have served with, and knew grandpa.)

To those who are still with us, Thank You!

Hope to hear back from somebody soon.

Jay
