COMMENTS: I got to this web site by way of my Uncle, O.C. Walker. He was a Staff Sgt. in 43. I have always respected him for who he is what he stands for, this is just one more reason. These men were/are from the greatest generation and I am very proud to call him my Uncle. His brother, E.E. Walker, my father was serving in Euorpe flying a B24 during the same period. These men are the GREATEST.

COMMENTS: my brother, john j. dunaj was with the vmb433. Lt. Butler was the pilot on the pbj.(B25). Sorry to say that John died in 1979 at the early age of 55. He was married and lived in Hillsdale, n.y. I keep in touch with his wife, Georgia Dunaj. John and I went through boot camp together. He was the smartest one. I did land on Iwo Jima in the first waves. I was a machine gunner. I got wounded on the six day. if you remember john, contact me via my e-mail. Semper Fi.
COMMENTS: I am the youngest daughter of Paul Mosley, Jr., who was a radio gunner on Emirau Island in 1945. We lost dad in 2003, but he would have loved this! I am printing all this information for my mom, who has the beginning stages of Alzheimer's. I want her to read all this while she still remembers. Thank you so much for all the work that went into getting this website together.
COMMENTS: I am the step-daughter of Vincent Rapoli (Communications) who has since passed away. He was very proud being a Marine and being able to serve his country. He was a New York police officer for 25 years, became the Director of Miami-Dade County Youth Hall (youth correction instituion), and went back and received his degree in Education prior to his untimely death due to cancer. I was so proud to see you have honored him. We are a proud Marine Corp. home-Semper Fi-Ooh Rah
