sorry for all the postings but this just in as they would say. Jim Slota, one of the other "kids" of VMSB243 and I were talking. So many people miss the Marine reunions and so many multi generations came, we have decided to put feelers out initially to see if family members/survivors of the squadrons, friends etc. would like to have a reunion. If so, would you contact me, I am hoping if you push contact me and have registered you will get my direct email but should be easy to google me and you should be able to find a phone number for me. Or post here. I don't often look on the site but every few months at this point but thought we'd ask if there was an interest. So many family members are finding out about their Dads and Grandads since the reunions quit in 2009. It's great Marine family!

I continue to be so grateful to this site. I am so glad to see comments from other family members. This group of Vets were an incredible group who we will always love. Semper Fi.

Dad served in WWII and the VMB433, he was active along with others and keeping the reunions going on. I am happy to say that my family and myself attended many. We miss our Vets but we know we will see them again but this time forever.

!st Lt. Robert O. Wilson went on after his service in the war to raise two children by his first wife. He worked as a salesman and executive for a variety of companies. His second wife was my mother, and they remained married until his death in 1994. He rarely talked about his military service but was a proud Marine all the time I knew him.
Many thanks for this site.

I was gratified to discover the 433 site...my Dad was Randy Sullivan (flew with Green and Adams as a bomb/nav.) He pasted in 1973. I discovered the 433 War Diaries (and associated unit data on the site for "Fold3" where they posted the recently declassified (2014) 433 (and other) logs, photos, etc. Lots of details of the ops, who, what, where, and when. Would love to speak with anyone who knew him, or family with photos.
Semper Fi.

I would like to add the name of a missing casualty to your list. If you check the PBJ-1D BuNo 35106 passenger manifest when it went down on 2 September 1944 you'll find the turret gunner, Sergeant Harold F. Stowe, is missing from the list. The 6th crewmember name you have, Corporal Leonard G. Klinger, was actually a passenger on board flying as an observer. Just want to make sure we remember ALL of them! You guys are doing a great job!

My uncle, mom's brother was Eddie Israel. I have his service portrait from mom after she passed away. She was able to get Eddie's service record and I was very interested in the fact that he flew in B-25s as I was not aware that the USMC flew them in WW2.

Just recently spoke with Don Tatreau. Was thrilled to be able to speak to someone from the unit.Don offered to send any info he may have to help out. MANY THANKS DON!!! To clarify about the confusion on my father I have a few insights. Looking at his log books though he flew with many pilots and co-pilots the vast majority was with Adams or Green as the pilot and Evans as the Co-pilot. Seems like on most of his missions Adams was his pilot until mid October 1944. At that point Green appears to have taken his place. My father is listed on the muster roll on page 73. He is also pictured on page 42 (second picture down on left side)of the cruise book. He is kneeling in the front row far right. Any info on him or the unit that can be shared is welcomed
Thanks
Randy Snook son of J.Roy Snook

Does anyone know what happened to Roy Snook from VMB433. We have a mystery that someone is trying to solve for Roy's son, Randy: Roy is listed in the VMB433 roll of honor deceased list but we can't locate record of him in the other materials related to VMB433.

If you know something, please do post, I will check this venue from time to time to see if any answers. Thanks so much! My email on record that the webmaster has is not working so I'm using another email temporarily.

Jane, Bill Parks daughter, VMB433
