My father, Frank Michelitch was a private first class/plane mechanic with the 413. He always talked about hitching a ride from Cherry Point to a railroad in Va. and then making his way back to NYC. He was always proud to be a USMarine. Please contact me with any knowledge/friendship you have of him. He passed away in 1994. Thankyou for all you have done for our country.

The best way to learn about your VMB 413 family member is to attend a VMB 413 Reunion. The next reunion will be held September 26-28, 2011 in Biloxi, MS. I am organizing this year's event, and would be happy to hear from anyone interested in attending. Just email me at rickbower@msn.com, and I will be happy to provide you with additional information. Many widows and children attend, so you would not be alone. Thre are three generations of my family attending. Come and see memorabilia and talk with the few remaining squadron members who shared experiences with your husband, father, or grandfather. You won't regret it.

My Dad Irving flew in this squadron. It is wonderful to see some of the pictures here and read of other relatives. We lost Dad a year ago and while he rarely spoke of his time in the service I know he was a proud Marine.

My father, Vin Rowley, was a parachute rigger in the 413th. He was only attached to them for a few months, but I am proud, and he would be too, to know that the 413th claim him as one of their own.
