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

Hi, I'm the great-grandson of Cpl. William J. Timberman. I was young when he passed away I don't remember much about him besides the fact that he was a marine. I would just like to thank everyone who made this site what it is.

Thank you for the great site. I am the grandson of Virgil Bolovan, radio man / side gunner in VMB-611. I attended one of VMB-611 reunions with him. I know he would be proud of this site, keeping the accomplishments of VMB-611 visible to the public. Best Regards, Greg Elliot
