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.

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.

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

My dad was Carl Nash Jr.. I gave my son in law, Tony Mattera, the Bombing Squardron patch and it led him to this website. This is a wonderful website! My dad was proud to be a marine and I followed in his footsteps. Semper Fi!

It is nice to see a new picture of my father and some of his friends that he often spoke of and his good old friend Jim Perrone who I met as a youngster. Bless them all.

Thanks for an informative Website. My father served with an Australian Anti-Aircraft artillery unit on Emirau, supporting the US and NZ airforce units and I am trying to find some information for him to read.

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.
