My father, Charles Murray served with the VMB-423. He never spoke of his experiences. I'd love to hear from anyone who knew him. Photos would be great but stories of what he experienced would be priceless. He was a radioman on a PBJ. Please contact me via email if you knew him. He died in 1993 and miss him every day.

I am the granddaughter of Cpl Fred B. Kegley, Jr. This website is great! My grandfather told me and my 13 cousins many stories about his Marine Corp service. Now being a spouse of an 0311 combat marine I understand better the magnitude of what these men went thru and gave up to serve our country! Siemper Fi! And much heartfelt love and thanks to all these men and the fearless legacy they have left behind!

My father Tail Gunner and Tech Sgt Ernest H. Prahm served in the Pacific with VMB 423. He was a tail gunner in a PBJ that came to Green Island with nose art. The aircraft had originally been called "The Uninvited" and had a black panther pouncing on a Japanese Rising Sun Flag. My Dad was so proud of his time in the Marine Corps and VMB 423 and told me so much about the war....that I sometimes feel like I was there.My dad passed away in 1996, but he never forgot a single detail of those days. Tom Taylor was his pilot along with Doyle Fowler. I am hoping to go to the next reunion so I can meet some of the men who knew him and shake the hands of all the men who were so brave and those who flew with him. Semper Fi! Respectfully, Timothy M. Prahm....the proud son of a proud and great Marine....Ernest H. Prahm 1921-1996.
