Hello Robert! Thanks for the email. Got a great site here for sure! I've seen a lot of Marine Corps sites that don't come close to your comprehensive historical knowledge. Job Well Done! Semper Fi!

My father, 1st Lt Doit L Fish, served in fellow Marine Bomber Squadron VMB 611 as a PBJ-1 Pilot under command of Lt Col George Sarles, Zamboanga, PI. My father and his 7-member crew became MIA on 30 May 1945 during a strike at Kibawe Trail near Davao, Mindanao, PI. On that same day, Lt Col Sarles and 3 crew members were KIA on the same strike. My father and crew's wreckage and remains were discovered 16 November 1956 with group burial on 15 July 1957 at Fort Logan National Cemetery, Denver, CO.

I am doing research on my Dad and VMB 611 and found VMB 613's and VMB 423's websites; both are excellent! I wish VMB 611 had one. I have made contact with Stu Allen of MAG 61, Alan Carey, "Leatherneck Bombers" and several VMB 611 Vets. I would like contact with VMB 613 Vets about early days of all VMB training at Cherry Point, Parris Island and Boca Chica or any other history you would like to share about WWII.

I am also a member of the Camarillo, CA Wing of the CAF. We are restoring the only current PBJ-1J (BuNo 35857) in existence to honor all VMB squadrons. As I am collecting VMB history for this project, please feel free to contact me.

I have really enjoyed your website. I have found it captivating as I do all stories and photos from the the folks that lived through the war. My own mother's first husband joined the Marines on December 9, 1941. He would later fight at Tarawa and Iwo Jima. I have nothing but undying respect and admiration for these folks. I have studied this era in American and aviation history all my life. My great uncle was a designer for Lockheed and worked primarily on the Constellation. I have a passion for the B-25 Marine and Army gunships and the couragous crews and the ground personnel that kept them going. You have my heartfelt thanks for sharing this wonderful website.

Outstanding web site! My father was a member of VMB-613 during this period. Sadly, my father (Matthew Martincevic) passed away in December 2000. To those members of 613 who are still with us and to those who have passed, I render a hand salute and a sincere Thank You for your service. You will always be part of America's greatest generation!

I have checked out the website many times to keep up on what's new. I am doing research on all the Marine PBJ Squadrons with a special interrest in accidents and incidents both state side and in the Pacific. If anyone has photos or information on any accident or incident I would appreciate hearing from you. All photos will be promptly copied and returned! Hangar Queen and Parts Department photos are also appreciated.

Great website and well done! I am a Marine who served from 74-78 working on T-28's and CH-46's (Plane Captain and Crew Chief).

You have done a tremendous job developing the VMB-613 website. It is an excellent, informative source of reference for anyone interested in the facts and history of the squadron. Your dedication to create a tribute worthy of these men who served is evident and admirable. I would say, 'Keep up the good work'...but I know you'll do that without any prompting.

Semper Fi!
