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

I am the daughter of Dan Hill and I live in Pensacola, Florida. The VMB-611, as you know, donated its archives to the National Museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola, which displays Navy, Marine and Coast Guard aviation. I have been volunteering there in order to work on the VMB-611 archives and am really getting to "know" the squadron members through photos, letters, Aircraft Action Reports, rosters, and other memorabilia. If you visit the museum, you can now access a portion of the archives. The museum's goal is to put the entire collection on the World Wide Web so anyone who would like to can have access to it. Thanks to all the squadron members for your dedication, your service, and your contributions to the archives.

He was very proud of his time in the squadron. I had the privledge of attending two reunions with him and met some of the squadron members. I am proud to be the son of a Marine and an honarary member of VMB611.
Dad passed on in Decemer, 2003. We buried him with military honors as should be, complete with the eagle, globe and anchor engraved in his coffin lid.
Semper Fi ooh rah, rest in peace
