My father, who passed away in 1984, served as a marine avaiation mechanic in WWII supporting VMSB-231 in the Marshall Islands on Majuro. I would like to find out about the history of the unit during that time and anyone that could provide details about life on the that Atoll.

My father who passed away long ago was named Francis Carmody. He was a fighter pilot in WWII (was also in Korea & Vietnam Nam) He wore a fighter jacket (brown) with a black ace of spades insignia on it. I can’t seem to locate what the black ace stood for or what group he was in. He had his own P51-D named Mary Lou on the island of Iwo Jima & Tinian . Please, could anyone help me find out more about his career?

You can send away for his military records. It costs a little money but very well worth it.
