Thank you for the information and photos. My dad was Lt. Charles G. Irwin who died May 29, 1973. I've been doing some genealogy research on our family and learned from Dad's military records of his work as an Ordnance Officer with the Marine Bombing Squadron 433 based on Emirau Island. I will share the link to your site with my family.

Hello all: it's great to see so many comments and what a great site!

For those of you who know my Dad, Bill Parks, from the Squadron, he has been seriously ill for some time now. He is weak and tired but if any of you would like to make a quick phone call to him, he'd love to hear from you, he's in San Jose, CA and his number is (408) 578-2658. Best times to call would be between 11-3 California time. He no longer does email and I am trying to reach as many of his friends as possible so they can say hello and Semper Fi!

Back to you, Jane Parks-McKay, Santa Cruz, CA

As a Trustee of the Mt. Soledad Veterans Memorial Assoc., I am a plaque designer for mounting on our walls on top of Mt. Soledad in La Jolla. Your Squadron has a very interesting history. I am currently working on a plaque for your former Pharmacist's Mate Second Frank Shea.

I was in Korea, on a little patrol frigate, taking part of preparing dead to be delivered to freezer vessels in Hungnam, the "Frozen Chosin" evacuation, December 1950. The evacuation that took on the saying "We're not retreating, we're just advancing in another direction!", or words to that effect. we have here in San Diego of the "FROZEN CHOSIN' organization. Congratulations to all of you for your success at Iwo and Okinawa, with Frank hopefully treating yours well. Semper Fi! Chuck

Thanks for the memories. My father was Bob Strange of Sumter, SC. He was with the vmb433 (page 3 photos) That officer met my mom (enlisted Marine), Shirley back in the States. He came back after the war and was killed as a test pilot for McDonnell Aircraft in St. Louis in 1955. He was one of four pilots killed testing the Demon fighter aircrft. That was the first look at what was to be the Phantom. SF!

Great site I found info here about my grandfather Weyman Carter Nav/Bombardier I had not known before. He passed in the early eighties when I was very young so I did not get to talk to him. I will get more info and post/send in to the webmaster as available. Thank you for a great site for some great Americans.

My Dad was C.W.O Gerald E. Brashier,former Engineering Officer for the VMB 433.

On this 4th of July weekend I can think of nothing more fitting than to remember Him and throw up a silent prayer for him and those he served with. This "Greatest Generation" gave everything to maintain the "Blessings of Liberty" for ourselves and those that came after.
