Comments: Looking for information, pictures if you have them, stories are good. My father, Billy D. Brown served as a Mosquito pilot as a 1st LT, retired in 1967 as a Major, passed away April 1985. He always told great stories of living in tents, and flying 60 missions in 30 days (a record at the time he would brag). He loved flying and the fact that he was an Air Force Officer.

Comments: My father, Douglas Zimmerman, received ribbons/medals for serving in Korea War but has lost them. One for sure was the Presidential Unit citation, the others I do not know but also would like to get. He presently is fighting bladder cancer and I would love nothing more than to find which ribbons/medals he had and get them for him. Does anyone know how I can do this and, if it is possible, can I could do it quickly? I want to make sure he sees them and holds them. It means the world to him, therefore it means more than that to me. Thank

Comments: When I tried to clear base supply at K-14 to get out of Korea when my tour was up, I was told that I was a good boy for turning everything in, with one exception. They wanted to know where the korean kid "Kim" was, and that I couldn't leave korea unless I could get someone else sign for him, because I had signed a supply receipt that said I had received 1 ea korean boy. He slept in my tent almost like a GI, and I had forgotten that I was incharge of the sqdn mascot. I got someone else to sign for him but I wish I had kept the reciept for proof that it happened.

Comments: I am a lifetime member of Mosquito Assn. Just found your site--very interesting to say the least. Thank you very much.

Keywords: 1st lt Don Moore, home town at the time--Berne IN. Was at K-6 (mosquito pilot-20 missions) Then was assigned to IX Corps for duty as forward controller but was extended an extra month while the mosquitoes were moved to k-47(Chunchon)
When returned to 6147th I was assigned to Mosquito Shirley for the last 65 missions.
While with the IX Corps on Easter sunday morning (6:30am) A flight of Marines (F6Fs or Corsairs (can't remember which) mistook our area for their target (25 miles further north) For all the ordinance they carried-thankfully did not too much damage. Killed 2 men--destroyed some trucks. No damage to Maj Bob Hackney's "L" Plane--messed up the runway some also. The two areas were very similar looking.
