My grandfather was Tony Melchionne, with the VMB-413. I'm here trying to track down info on him and his Squad, any help would be great, thank you.

I received word this afternoon that Don Tatreau, a proud member of VMB passed away from an emergency last Tuesday. He and I stayed in close touch and along with his wife who is a brilliant artist there in the Asheville, North Carolina area. He will be missed. No services planned yet but later on. If anyone wishes to send a sympathy card, please let me know? I do not know if the Squadron website has my updated email at this point but you can always google me and find me easily. I am happy to share any information you would wish. Don was the last Veteran from VMB433 that I was in touch with other than Father Fred Green, now with Alzheimers in South America where he worked for many years. He was happiest there. RIP Don and many of your comrades. We appreciate all you did!

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.
