MARINE BOMBING SQUADRON SIX-THIRTEEN

SQUADRON LOG BOOK





COMMENTS:
I am so proud that my father, J Clifford Scott (MD) and all of the men in his squadron did their part and contributed so much during WW II to preserving our freedom, and earning freedom back for countless thousands of people in other parts of the world. He joined up (becoming flight surgeon)after struggling to lose necessary weight, and was very committed. His caring for the others in his outfit was strong and abiding, and in his late years he very much valued the squadron reunions as long as he was able, before passing on at age 99, in 2006. I know that most of the folks on this message are "children" and "grandchildren" to the young men of that day; I feel kindred to you all, and thank your families for what they did to help rescue peoples of the world way back then.

My father, Theodore Evermont Adkins, a member of VMB-613, passed away on April 3, 2013. He left his family in West Virginia to join the Marines at the age of 17. He was proud of his service to his country.

Ten year volunteer at Flying Leatherneck Historical Foundation, MCAS, Miramar, San Diego, CA. Until I joined the staff of the museum, I never knew the USMC flew any type of multi-engine bomber. We possess a B-25/PBJ at the museum which is in the initial stages of a two year restoration. In the meantime I am trying to learn as much as I can about the PBJ squadrons, the men and the missions. The website will be an excellent resource for me and thank you for your service and Semper Fi.

My grandfather was Ssgt Frank E Acker, he inspired me to enlist in our Corp. Sad to have to report we laid him to rest today. He was a great inspiration and a damn good man. Semper Fi gents.

Hello,
Thank you for maintaining this website. I was searching for information about my granduncle, Herbert Folk. He passed away some years ago unfortunately, and I was unsure what he had done during the war. I only knew that he was a marine, and possibly served on an aircraft. From the photographs I can see he was definitely in your unit.
Thank you also for your service.

I'm glad I found the VMB-613 website. I married John J. Duarte's daughter (Sandy Duarte)and now our children can read and see what their Grandfather’s Squadron experienced.

Semper Fi Marines!

I've been doing research on the squadron trying to find information on my grandfather and what he did. This was perfect for me. It's great to see someone remembering everything they did. My grandpa would have loved to see this.

I recently looked through some squadron pictures with my sister, and found several more of our dad and other airmen who are unidentified. If you are interested in some more pictures of people for your website, we would love to get you some digital copies. Just email and let me know. Semper Fi!!!!
