Thanks for the excellent site info. Just had one additional question for clarification. Which was the first target struck by VMB-413 in March 1944? Was it Rabaul or Bougainville? I know that both were hit at that time, but it is unclear, in several sources, as to just which one was hit first, and on what particular day. I am trying to update the sign that we have for the B-25J which stands in for our museum's PBJ-1J exhibit, and would to be both precise and accurate.

Thanks for your time and, more importantly, for your service.

Sincerely,

My grandfather was Wiley A. Green. He passed away when I was in elementary school, about 14 years ago. He was also stationed in France and Germany when my mother was finishing high school (around '67-'68).

I'm trying to get information about my late father, William E Cullum, who I thought served with the 413 in WWII. I don't see him listed in the roster, though. Is the roster posted on your (terrific, by the way) website complete?
Thanks for any help.
Robert Cullum

Hello all, I am the son of William R Mallette. He also flew with the 413th group. He was buried 3 years ago with over 20 Marines from the Memphis area that fought in the pacific.

As I got older the light of what he and his fellow marines did in those B-25's amazed me. I have never been so proud of him. His only remark about flying 48 combat missions was..." I was surronded by much better men than me son ", that sounds like a true Marine. If anybody is still around that remembers my father, pls email me at the above email, thanks and thank God for you gentleman who fought that war. I really miss him.

Michael Mallette

Do any of the folks of 413 SQN remember being involved in mixed sorties with Royal New Zealand Air Force Lockheed Ventura's (PV 1) out of Emirau JAN through to MAR 1945?
