COMMENTS:
Happy Memorial Day. We spent the day celebrating our fallen Heroes but let us remember them, if we can, all year round. You are all heroes to us AND those who served for your country so that we can have the freedom that we have.

If anyone else is viewing the logbook, would love to see comments from others. Let us not forget the fine, fine people who served in VMB433.

God Bless.

VMB433 Member wrote me last night about some sad news:

Fred Stokes passed away January 5th at 9:30 p.m. Services will be this Friday, June 9th. I'm sure the family would like to receive messages of sympathy.

Glen Albright's wife, Irene, passed away last September from what Don said.

I will be sending sympathy cards to both families and will, of course, mention VMB433 family.

God Bless their souls and the hearts of their families and friends.

We have had two passings of wives, both of whom attended many Marine squadron reunions and were well-loved by a ll of us.

Polly Wilson, widow of Bill Wilson, passed away recently in Texas. Her daughter who attended many reunions did a fine job of taking care of her beloved Mother to the end. Polly lived in Texas.

Kitty Leonard, widow of Bill Leonard, passed away and her services were held in South Carolina this past Saturday. Graham, her daughter who attended reunions and helped coordinate a few for the group and family did a fine job taking care of their Mom too. Don and Maxine Tatreau who live in North Carolina attended and I learned what a wonderful service it was.

Cards would be appreciated to both families. The 2009 roster, the last one published, correctly has the addresses that interested people can send words of sympathy to. God rest the souls of these very nice ladies, I enjoyed both myself over the years.

Happy Thanksgiving 2014

Several things. If Barbara (Arant) Carleton is reading these, we would love to hear from her. Our computer erased all of the emails and we have lost hers.We used to stay in close touch.

Also, I was wondering if anyone knew that someone could travel to the old haunts that my Dad (Bill Parks) and his buddies went to during WWII. Emirau Island, etc.? Is there a tour company that can take me to these places?

Thanks to my brother Paul Turlick, he did some research on obtaining our father, Andrew Turlick, records. I've enjoyed this site and reading all your comments. We share a common bond, it's a beautiful tribute and memory to our brave soldiers.

Hi. My dad was Rudolph Rock, sergeant, ordnance. Dad passed almost ten years ago but I still think of him every day. He was a great guy and I'm sure an outstanding Marine. Thanks to all you guys for your service. I have his photo alblums and if anyone would like to have them to share, let me know.

Thanks, TSR

Charles J. O'Reilly U.S.M.C. and a proud member of squadron VMB-433, passed away on February 7th, 2014 at the age of 91. He loved to tell us stories of the B-25, island adventures of the south pacific, and many other great things about the Marines. Even now, all of us know and feel that the spirit of “The Corps” in our bones, it was impossible not to when you were with him. With that in mind, we shall always stay faithful to the U.S.M.C. and so honor him for generations to come. SEMPER FIDELIS.

Hello all: by chance does anyone happen to have a photo of my late Dad, William (Bill) R. Parks in his uniform from the Squadron? I want to nominate my Dad for a special set of baseball playing cards but they need a photo of Dad in his uniform in the day. If you have it, let me know asap?

I have had such a special time looking through one of the Squadron's last Muster lists. Having attended reunions for 433 since the late 1980's and almost until the end, so many names sound familiar, so man wonderful stories and times shared.

As I read from the fellow "kids" of this Greatest Generation, I want you to know how much I share your pride in your Dads, your Grandpa's in this Sqaudron. I knew these members from the time they were in the 50's at the St. Lous reunion and got to know even 4th generations.

To the grandson of D. K. Crosswhite, I looked at the deceased list as posted on your July16, 2012 posting and Don Menhennet that I last heard is still alive. If you would like me to connect you with him, please let me know, my number is (831) 475-0588. Santa Cruz, CA time. The other Marines you listed are deceased according to the 10 November 2009 roster.

God bless you all. We not only share in our pride for this group but we are family.

Jane Parks-McKay, daughter of William R. Parks, San Jose, CA
died June 10, 2012.
