Great site, and wonderful information.
I was disappointed that my dad was not included included in the roster.
My dad served in the Philippines from 1944-45 as a PBJ pilot and was wounded, as a result of attempting to disarm unexploded ordinance found in the sands around the island he was on. He was never recognized for his heroic efforts, as many lives of the native residence were saved, due to his and many other officers efforts.
I f there is any way he could be included in your roster, I would appreciate it.
His name is Angelo H. Deghi. He would have been very proud to see his name on your list, as he was a very proud Marine. he passed away in 2005.
Thank you

Last night I ran across some of dad's memorabilia, maps,a USMC memo regarding Lt Col Sarles, etc in an old briefcase. That prompted me to check the website. I then noticed there was no occupational specialty next to his name. He was a pilot and also served as engineering officer. As a child I recall looking through the old B-25 service manuals he had kept as well as photographs of plane damage.He finished the war in internment at a Chinese prison. As a result, I believe, he did not return with the squadron as a group.

I was married to Cliff Bombard for 28 years and we enjoyed each and every reunion prior to his death in 2000. Fellow Marines in his plane were Flynn, Fritz, Carveth and Joyce. We also shared many small reunions in Plymouth, Mass. So many wonderful memories. I never met Fritz as he passed away just after Cliff and I married. My husband and Paul Flynn attended his (Fritz's) burial at sea aboard a Coast Guard vessel. I was blessed to fall in love for the second time and am now married to Dennis Kennedy and we still reside in south Florida.
Lots of love to all of my VMB611 lifelong friends. Dena

Hi, I'm the great-grandson of Cpl. William J. Timberman. I was young when he passed away I don't remember much about him besides the fact that he was a marine. I would just like to thank everyone who made this site what it is.

Thank you for the great site. I am the grandson of Virgil Bolovan, radio man / side gunner in VMB-611. I attended one of VMB-611 reunions with him. I know he would be proud of this site, keeping the accomplishments of VMB-611 visible to the public. Best Regards, Greg Elliot

My father, Charles R. Bernasek was a radio and radar technician in VMB 611 and was very proud of the time he served in the squadron. Unfortunately, he is no longer with his family, because he passed away on July 23, 2005.
Being a Marine was something he was proud of being all his life and it meant the world to him. As the Mrines say, "Once a Marine, always a Marine", and I am so proud of him for that because without all of the men who served in VMB-611 none of us would have the freedoms we have today. And for that, I am so very grateful and thank all of you for your service.

My father, Edward F. Slattery, was a young Merchant Marine in the early '40's. I found his name on a manifest of the SS Zoella Lykes. It arrived in San Fransisco on April 22, 1945. It departed from Langenak Bay, New Guinea. Can you shed any light on how he ended up being put on that vessel and returned to the US? Sadly, my dad passed away in Jan of 2009 and didn't talk about his adventures in the Pacific very much. Thanks for any information that you might have.
