MARINE BOMBING SQUADRON SIX-ELEVEN

SQUADRON LOG BOOK





COMMENTS:
Excellent website. My grandfather was a radio/gunner on one of the PBJ's from VMB-611. My father, who passed away 2 weeks ago told me everything I know about my grandfather. The author of the book, "The Bombers of Magzam" sent my father a copy of his book. BTW, the last name is spelled CaggIano (everyone keeps omitting the "I" in our last name.) But I have his dog tags and the USMCR spelled it correctly.

Hello. This is my first visit to your website and was very pleased to see a picture of my father,"HENRY R HARTMAN". My father passed in 1994 in an automobile accident and his wife, my mother KATHLEEN HARTMAN, just passed in Oct 2012. I am the exectutor of their estate and I have found pictures from Zamboanga that were Henry's. He so enjoyed the reunions, and over the years, met some of his friends from the Corp. He never said much about the war, but he did tell plenty of stories about the good times. That was his way.
I'd like to help with some pictures if at all posible.
Sempre Fi
Henry W Hartman

My Father William C. Olson was in Zamboanga, where he used to say the Monkeys have no tails, is anyone out there still alive today that served with Dad? I think he was there in the Mid 1940's

Great site, and wonderful information.
I was disappointed that my dad was not included included in the roster.
My dad served in the Philippines from 1944-45 as a PBJ pilot and was wounded, as a result of attempting to disarm unexploded ordinance found in the sands around the island he was on. He was never recognized for his heroic efforts, as many lives of the native residence were saved, due to his and many other officers efforts.
I f there is any way he could be included in your roster, I would appreciate it.
His name is Angelo H. Deghi. He would have been very proud to see his name on your list, as he was a very proud Marine. he passed away in 2005.
Thank you

Last night I ran across some of dad's memorabilia, maps,a USMC memo regarding Lt Col Sarles, etc in an old briefcase. That prompted me to check the website. I then noticed there was no occupational specialty next to his name. He was a pilot and also served as engineering officer. As a child I recall looking through the old B-25 service manuals he had kept as well as photographs of plane damage.He finished the war in internment at a Chinese prison. As a result, I believe, he did not return with the squadron as a group.

I was married to Cliff Bombard for 28 years and we enjoyed each and every reunion prior to his death in 2000. Fellow Marines in his plane were Flynn, Fritz, Carveth and Joyce. We also shared many small reunions in Plymouth, Mass. So many wonderful memories. I never met Fritz as he passed away just after Cliff and I married. My husband and Paul Flynn attended his (Fritz's) burial at sea aboard a Coast Guard vessel. I was blessed to fall in love for the second time and am now married to Dennis Kennedy and we still reside in south Florida.
Lots of love to all of my VMB611 lifelong friends. Dena
