Merry Christmas to all. My youngest daughter, Robin Hill Rowan,from Pensacola,Fl.,has been working on our archives at the National Naval Aviation Museum at NAS Pensacola for some years. We turned over our squadron archives to the museum in 2006, and she has been at work as a volunteer trying to get our squadron history together for all of us and our kids and grandchildren. The National Museum of Naval Aviation's Director of the Library and Archives, Hill Goodspeed, has agreed to allow Robin to share all of the archives with this website while still working on the museum's web site. If you have any material that would provide more information about our 611 story (especially identification of squadron members in the photos), send all material to her at rrowan55@cox.net. We would be eternally grateful. Have a great new year. Dan Hill at 970 Clark Lane Des Plaines, Il. 60016

Hi! Wonderful website. I was born at Cherry Point so was born a Marine. My Dad, Cpl. Donald B. Yancey was in Bombing Squadron Six-Eleven and I am trying to get in my mind what he did as he would never talk about it. He is now deceased so there is some pain in doing this but I feel that to really get to know him I must press forward. I was expecially thrilled to see a picture of him here which was pointed out to me in an email from Dave Fish. Thank you. This helps. I have lots of photographs that I found with his records if they are needed by anyone and I would love to hear from anyone who knew him or about him.

Today I received from Raymond Perry my copy of his republished book THE BOMBERS OF MAGSZAM. Should there be any interest in obtaining Mr. Perry’s book on the history and the men who served so gallantly in VMB 611, the publisher is Crosam Press, ISBN: 978-0-9818903-0-2.

In Their Memory and In Their Honor, Semper Fi.

First let me start by saying that this is a fantastic website. Looking over its content gives me a better idea of what you men did for our country so that generations ahead such as mine have it so good. Specifically it gives me insight into what my grandfather was a part of so many years ago.
That being said, it is with great sadness that I let you know that on Monday, November 24th 2008 my grandpa, Staff Sergeant Thomas R. Craig passed away at the age of 82.
Again, thank you all for what you've done for our country. We should all aspire to be as great as you men are, especially my grandfather.

Craig Howe,
Grandson of Thomas R. Craig

This is a great web-site. I especially love the music. They don't play songs like that anymore. I am a Marine veteran of Korea. My older brothers were in WW II. Thank you for saving us. God Bless America

I am so glad to see this website, allowing all who see it to pay their respects, and to be educated about the VMB-611. My grandfather is Gordon "Mike" Swezey. He is the man that I admire the most in this world. I am very interested to know how his nickname "Mike" came about if any of the readers here know! If anyone has any stories to share with me about him, I would love to hear them, please feel free to contact me. I would like to thank you all for the protection of our country, you are an extremely important part of our history as Americans. I want to personally thank you for putting your lives on the line for us to have the freedoms that we have and enjoy today and I would also like to say that I appreciate each and every one of you!
Best Regards,
Shawna-Fay Booth
(Gordon "Mike" Swezey's grand-daughter
