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

My Dad, Harvey W. Ebright, Jr., served in the 413th since its inception. He was a staff sergeant, and worked with ordnance. Any stories about him would be appreciated. Have some photos I could share for the website.

Major Nickerson flew with the following VMB-413 pilots in 1945: Mendenhall (believe to be Major Edward V. Mendenhall; Abbott; Ballard; Gearheart (believe to be Lt. Jerrold J. Gearheart); Mallette (believe to be Lt. William R. Mallette); Frooner or Frogner; Novasal; Lt. Peter Ingberg; Curd; Michael; Caven; Radin. Also Tail Gunner PFC Carl Wyss Jr. These men are listed in hopes that a family member may see this when searching the internet and contact me via the site's webmaster.

My Dad, Frank R. Conant flew 20+ missions. He will be 90 in March and still looks and feels great. We met a B25 fan and he directed us to this sight. Frank has gone back to MASS, but I will direct him to this website. Thankyou Gary Lewis for helping us find this website and other information.

My father was John D. Curd and flew with the 413. I think for only a couple of months. I have the letter when he was awarded the Air Medal while he flew with the 413 in July 1945. I have his flight books and some of the names of the co-pilots listed during July & August 1945 were: Brigham, MacLean, Henry, Noll, Willis, Jones, Anderson, Nelson, Leggio, and Cunningham. Do any of these names sound familiar? Does anyone remember my dad?

My grandfather was Sgt. James E. See. We have a copy of the squadron photo on your website. He never talked much about his war days, but his service in WWII is a source of great pride for all of us.

Would love to hear from anyone who remembers him or has stories of those days.

We are all so grateful to the VMB413 and all of our country's WWII veterans!

Hi from New Zealand, Wanted to pay my respects to Squadron Four-Thirteen. My Grandfather (92yrs old and still kickin!) was in the RNZAF No.9 Bomber Recon Squadron based in Emirau Is. at the same time towards the end of WW2... He has only recently started talking about the war and has very vivid account of his time on the islands. Very humbled by the sacrifice made by all concerned.
cheers, K
