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

To Randy who posed in 2010. I have received word from Don Tatreau, one of the fine VMB433 members that he has some photos that you would like, I believe your post was in 2010 and not sure you are still here but would you let me know? Jane

Hello: I would be happy to talk with the daughter of our Dad's best friends, how can we get in touch? Also Bob Burns son, that is terrific that you found the log book on ebay. SO GOOD to see all the other family members. Yes, this was a very special group and I miss all of them. I do speak with Don Tatreau regularly and have called some from the muster list from when the group last met for reunions. I will never forget those gatherings. We are family…

Jane

I just received a WWII era copy of the VMB-433 History and Cruise Log that I found for sale on ebay. My dad, Robert Burns, was a mech/gunner with 433. He passed away in November, 2009, so this was a very special find.

I'd like to contact Mrs. Parks-McKay, as Parks, her father, was one of my Dad's best friends.

My father, Major Robert C. Woten was a pilot who flew the B-25's on Emirau during WWWII. He must have earned his Distinguished Fylying Cross there, as it is on his uniform and his DD214. He lived until Oct. 2009, and passed at 94 1/2 years from old age. He retired in 1962 and took his family over to Germany, where we lived for 10 years. Mom, Lee Woten, preceded him in 2003. He was a great pilot. He was recruited right out of Flight School in Corpus Cristi to be an instructor, so he got into the So. Pacific theater a little late. RIP, and SEMPER FI! Dad

Hello, my dad Donald J. Synold was a part of this group. He was a staff Sargent mechanic turret gunner with Bill Parks as pilot. He didn't talk a lot about his time in the pacific but he was so proud to be a marine. He only learned about reunion after he was to sick to travel. Love this page.

I just learned about this site a few minutes ago. Sure enough, my father, James David Hall, is listed. All of the info you have is correct, but I would love to offer more info if you're interested. He spoke tirelessly about his time in VMB433; his tales have become family lore. I took great efforts to record as much as I could before his passing at the age of 88 in 2013.

I just realized that my father was a pilot in this squadron. He was Capt Joseph Adamson and I was thrilled to see him in the second row of the picture of pilots. Thanks so much for having this site. A family mystery solved!

My Dad, Mordecai Walter Hensley, served as a radio gunner in Marine Aircraft Group 61 - Squadron VMB 433 on Emirau during WWII. Some of the men in his squadron were John Dunaj, Donald Keefe, Philip Viehmann, Paul Dudley, Bob Bohanon, Gerald Merz, Pilot Jim Butler, and Pilot ? Smith. Dad passed away January 29, 2016 at the age of 91. He was buried with full military honors. It was a beautiful ceremony and so wonderful to see the young Marines in their dress blues who so faithfully serve. Dad would have been pleased and so very proud! Thank you to all who have served and who are serving our country! Semper Fi!
