MARINE BOMBING SQUADRON SIX-ELEVEN

SQUADRON LOG BOOK





COMMENTS:
My stepfather in the mid-1950s was John R. Adinolfi of VMB-611. I have read the book on the squadron (obtained from my father-in-law Everett L. Arthur) and seen the Wheeler account on web site about them being shot down. I'd appreciate hearing about what happened to John R.at the end of the war and afterwards. I believe he was in Anacostia about 1956. I understand that he may have died in 1997? Any information is appreciated. Thank you

I was very glad to see this site. My father was Everett L. Arthur, communications officer. He died in 2011. He was very proud to have been a part of this squadron. I have some pictures from reunions. Is there anyone who can identify people in these pictures? Do you have a squadron historian who would like to receive these pictures?

I had the pleasure to meet William Whiteside today, and who was a Staff Sargent with VMB-611. We had a long chat about his time with this squadron, and was glad to have found this site. My brother is a former Marine aviator (HMM-163), and I a former Naval aviator (HAL-3). You have a great website and quite a legacy.

My uncle was Robert L. Woods. On the morning of 9/11 he was flying from Washington DC to San Diego for a much anticipated reunion with his Squadron. They were rerouted for several days till allowed to fly again. He did not return home immediately when the all clear came but like many of his compatriots, not to be deterred, he continued on to his original destination. What a remarkable generation! And how much we owe them.

Hi! My great uncle was Charles A. Jones, Jr. I have recently been going through all of his letters that my family has of his from the war. My grandmother, Isabel, was his younger sister. His death greatly impacted my family. Unfortunately it was so traumatic that he was rarely spoken of after his passing. Being born 41 years after his approx. date of death / going MIA, he has become somewhat of a mythical figure in my family. I'm hoping that by posting here that perhaps someone may be able to shed some light or share some stories about my uncle Charles in regards to who he was as a man, friend, and soldier. Thank you so much for your time.

Sincerely ,
Libby
