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

Although I'm not on your roster, I would like to mention that I was with VMB 413 from May 1945 until it's break-up. I flew as turret-gunner with Lt.'s Mendenhall,Mueleisen and Arsenault. I also flew the last 6 missions from Emirau with Maj.Nickerson,(I remember him well).
I really enjoyed going through the VMB 413 website. A great outfit.

I'm seeking information about John D. Curd and his brother Travis A. Curd, who was killed in a flying accident in North Carolina 21 August 1943.

The brothers served with the Royal Canadian Air Force before transferring to the USMC in May 1942.

My wife's uncle was Michael F. Mazepa. He was a gunner in Lieut. Glenn W. Smith's plane which was shot down over Rabual on May 4, 1944.
We are hoping to find one or more pictures of him on your web site.
Can you tell me the number on their plane?
Can anyone point out pictures with him it?
Any help would be appreciated.

As I read about your efforts I marvel at the heroic efforts you undertook with flights every day and night. I am in awe.

Good Day to All,
Mt father, Weston Nickerson JR., served on the island of Emirau while in the US Navy. I know that the year was in 1944 since I have dated photos from Imirau. He was a signalman stationed on land(not a ship at this time). I realize this is a Marine unit but just wondering if anyone knew some of the Navy guys such as my father. Please send an email.

Thank you all,
Ralph Nickerson
