I am the son of SGT George A. Dienst, Jr. Thank you for putting together a great website that helps us understand a bit of what happened in the Pacific. Lots of great information. Also, a big thank you to all the marines that served and serve our country.

My father First Lt.John I. Ashbaugh pictured on page 2 is still alive at 87. He stayed in the Marine Corps Reserves flying Corsairs and AD Sky Raiders and became CO of VMF-351 in Atlanta. I told him about the site two days ago and it brought back many memories. Thanks so much for all the hard work that went into this VMB-611 site.

I have been searching for information on my Dad’s WWII service and that has led me to this outstanding website. Thank you to all that have worked to put it together and support it. Over the years Dad spoke little of his war experiences. Sadly, he died in 1980 at the much too young age of 61. That left the family with knowing not much more about his war service other than he flew with VMB 611 and was wounded. Thanks to the internet and records from the Navy Dept. we have been able to put together a good picture of what he did as a part of this outstanding group of men during that time. To all of the men of VMB 611 you are true American heroes and I sincerely thank you for your service and sacrifice.

This a wonderful place to lay down some thoughts and memories. My brother Edward Harris Jackson, was with Lt. Lawrence's crew that paid the price. Semper Fi, to all who flew, and made it safer for those of us to grow up free. Never Forget!

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.

Dave Fish
