Father's military experience
Posted by Mike on 6/23/2010, 11:13 am
I have little information to go on due to my father saying very little about his service in WWI. His name was Carmine Peter Iannaccone but his nickname was Chuck. He was a Navigator/Bombadere radioman/Gunner. I know he enlisted in USMC in Sep 1942 discharged in Dec 1943 and enlisted in USN for pre0-flight training; discharged in May 1944 and back into the Marines in May 1944 until his discharge in May 1946. I also know he was in Japan during the occupation.
Was your squadron based in Japan during the occupation? How can I find which squadrons were. I have researched vmbmarines.com and can't find him anywhere.
