Hi! My great uncle was Charles A. Jones, Jr. I have recently been going through all of his letters that my family has of his from the war. My grandmother, Isabel, was his younger sister. His death greatly impacted my family. Unfortunately it was so traumatic that he was rarely spoken of after his passing. Being born 41 years after his approx. date of death / going MIA, he has become somewhat of a mythical figure in my family. I'm hoping that by posting here that perhaps someone may be able to shed some light or share some stories about my uncle Charles in regards to who he was as a man, friend, and soldier. Thank you so much for your time.

Sincerely ,
Libby

As a Viet Nam Veteran ( USMC-Da Nang 1966), I want to Thank each and everyone of these heroic Marines for giving me my freedoms and they taught me what honor and commitment that I owe to my God, my Country and my Corps and my Family. With these gallant men there would be no America. Thank You

LOVE this website. My stepdad was Major Richard E. Maulsby - thanks to him, I also joined the Corps and served 22 years, retiring in 2002. I was lucky enough to attend several mini-reunions of VMB-611 while stationed aboard MCAS El Toro in the mid-80s. I can't thank you enough for this magnificent tribute - truly a labor of love and so well done!!! :)

I am looking for a James F Wolfe. His name is not in the Personnel listings. We know that he was with the 611 in 1945. He was a Sergeant.
