My Dad was 1st LT. Paul Haaland. I was thinking about VMB-611 today, and the great reunions you all had, especially remembering the ones that were held at our resort Eagle Bay, in Park Rapids, Minnesota. How lucky I was to have gotten to meet so many heroes. What a great surprise to google 611 and find this great site. My Dad passed away in 1983, he did tell me some stories, but none that I can put into context, this site is helping with some of that. Thanks for the site, the info on the museum in Pensacola. Most of all thanks to all who have served so that we can be free! Kathleen

My father, Alexander Manuele, navigator/bombardier in MBS-611 passed away on 26 Feb 2016 in upstate NY. He was 93 years old.

I have a photo of him, in a group, taken in front of a MBS-611 propeller attached to a palm tree.

He was a good man, and great father.

So honored to have found this site dedicated to those who served. I have a question, I looked up my dad's military service WWII and found records that he had served with the 611, yet his name is not on the list of personnel..... as an ex-Navy wife/widow I understand military SNAFU's.....
But, is there someone who could check this? He is gone, but I want him or his service not to be forgotten.....
I don't know what his rank was with the 611, but he discharged as Technical Sargent Erwin H. Jaffe - he was usually called Jeff or Harry. Thanks again ..... and thanks again for service by our military everywhere.

I recently located an original acrylic paintng named "Coming In' based on photos by William Whiteside. According to the providence attached Mr. Whiteside flew 37 missions as Tail gunner. The picture is of two PBJ's # 5 and # 11 circling Emirau Island November 1944. The airstrips and bivouac areas are visible. It continues to describe about how both planes #5 crashed in a storm and #11 failed to return from a mission in Mindano. Is there any further providance or interest in this? Claims to be 1 of 50 or 450. Hard to tell. Thanks WT
