In doing research on the B25 Mitchell Bomber I came accross your web site and was overwhelmed when i saw my Dad's name and pictures. He tragically passed away in 1979 when I was younger, I was unable to really get to know the man and the hero I knew he was!!
Thank you so much for allowing me to share this site with my children. Letting them know that their grandad
served proudly in the United States Marines!!!

I have recently been given photos and letters about my grandfather Cpl. Ostell Scarborough who served on the island of Kwaljaneil during WWII. I woould love to know if any veterans remembered him. I would also love to hear about life on the island during that time.

I seem to have located the graves of all but one of the men who were killed in action on February 6, 1945 on, and above, Ponape. I also have the OPNAV-16-223 action report from that day.

Just a sad note to let everyone know that Michael Pasachnik passed away on January, 31, 2009, in Cooperstown, NY, following surgical complications. He was an extraordinary man who is greatly missed. Helen is doing well, and now resides in an assisted living facility near their former home. We send our warmest holiday greetings to everyone.

I was born in Newport in 1962. While I grew up around MCAS Tustin and El Toro, I never knew that my birthplace was home USCMS bombing squadron. Thanks for a great website!

hello, all. just a note to say how much i enjoy your site (it now occupies a place in a "favorites" folder of mine), it is quite comprehensive.

i have no connection to the -613 but, have always considered the b-25/pbj-1 one of the most handsome of america's twin-engined bombers. i discovered this site while surfing the web, sort of an internet accidental tourist.

btw, as you may already know, wingscale (a new plastic, scale model molder from the netherlands) has a 3-model series of b-25s: a -j plexi-nose, a -j "strafer" with 12 fixed 50s forward, and a -h with four fixed 50s forward and the pappy gunn 75mm cannon modification (god, i LOVE that one). oh, yeah, they're all in 1/32nd scale! price has yet to be fully fixed but, expect something in the $135-$150 range.

and, if the above three aren't enough for you, i've seen test shots of their 1/32nd b-17!!! yikes! the house is going to need an addition.

again, congrats on the site. the period photos of the base, aircraft, et al are a huge factor in making the site a great source of info on the squadron, its members and the time & place they inhabited during the war. thanks so much for taking the time to share it all.

"bung ho!" and keep'em flying...at least virtually.

later,
-J

My grandfather was in Kwajalein during WWII... Name is Hollis V. Morgan. Around 1945... Was wanting to check if anyone has heard of him or remember him. It would be great to find some people he may remember. Please let me know so I can pass along info to him. Thanks
