COMMENTS: Greetings; Thank you for a very informative website. What brings me here is because my dad, Eugene Bable was a pilot with your squadron. He died about 10 years ago and I'm now interested in doing some research on his WWII squadron. I'm an advid scale modeler and am planning to build a model of the plane he flew and this site is perfect. My passion for airplanes has been a direct result of his influences. Although I'm not a pilot I served honorably in the US Airfore for 20 years. I'm now working in the airline industry. I'm so glad you have created this great web site to assist me in completing my project. Thank you Neil Bable, son.

COMMENTS: Thank you very much for the website. It has greatly improved over the years. I'm writing on behalf of my father of the same name. He has been unable to travel for some years now but it's nice that there's a way to still feel a part of things. Keep up the good work.
COMMENTS: MANY MANY THANKS TO YOU, ROBERT, FOR THIS GREAT WEBSITE!! I am writing on behalf of my dad, Peter Di Clementine, who is so proud to have been a member of this great squadron. Dad will be 96 in June and since his eyesight is not what it was when he was a navigator back in the day, we printed out enlargements of some of the photos and flight crew rosters and Dad has spent many hours looking through them and reminiscing. We are so grateful for this opportunity to share Dad's memories of the many friends he made while serving our country. One of these friends, Bill Parks, has worked tirelessly throughout the years to keep all the squadron members and their families in touch so another special thanks goes out to him. MANY MANY THANKS once again to both Bill and Robert! Semper Fi!!
Sincerely, Diane (Di Clementine) Erickson (on behalf of our whole family!)
COMMENTS: THIS A VERY IMPRESSIVE WORK WHICH I FOUND TO BE INFORMATIVE AND AN ENJOYABLE LOOK IINTO THE PAST. THE ROSTER IS A VERY COMPLETE OUTLINE OF PERSONNEL. I FOUND THE NAMES OF CREW-MEMBERS WHICH I HAD FORGOTTEN. BRINGS BACK MANY MEMORIES. THANKS FOR THIS.

COMMENTS: My grandfather, Orville C. Walker, is sitting here with me viewing this informative and interesting website about his service in the Marines. Grandpa was a Staff Sergeant who served from 1942-1945 and he spent the majority of his time in the Pacific. I was also honored to tour the WWII Memorial in DC with him and my grandma just a few years ago at the annual reunion.
COMMENTS: This is an awesome website. I'm sorry my dad, K.O.Dahlgren, aka. The Spam Kid, didn't live long enough to see this. He would have loved it!!!! He was so proud of his Marine Corps days and all of you. He enjoyed all of your reunions immensely and looked forward to all of them. I forward this website to my 5 brothers and sisters so that they can enjoy it too. GREAT JOB! Love the music.

COMMENTS: It took me a long time to find this site. I regret to inform that 1st Lt. P.D. Louther passed away Oct. 17, 2006. He had resided in La Mesa, California and was retired from Pacific Telephone Co. He was a close personal friend and co-worker for many years. He is survived by his wife Dorothy and a son, Jack and wife and grandchildren. He talked little about his experiences in WWll but was a great friend to many of us, one that we sorely miss. Semper Fi
