I too would appreciate any information you might have regarding "Rubby's" (that's how I knew him) time in VMB423.
His service in both the Marine Corps & Army also inspired me. I received my commision in the Navy in 1982 after completion of AOCS in Pensacola, while not quite the pilot he was I ended up as a Surface Warfare Office in destroyers. One of my guests at commisioning was his wife Rosemarie, she said she had waited 40 years to see a commisioning. She was unable to attend Paul's as she was getting ready for her marriage later that day!
