Comments: Taking a long shot to respond to Thomas Candy's request from December, 2002. Larry Finney is my god-uncle, and I'm named after him. Larry last lived in FL and passed in 1991 from pancreatic cancer. He was married twice and has a few children, including a son, also named Larry someplace out west, who is in aviation field also (as am I). Just recently got his military records and am trying to decode, as I did not serve. After Korea he became airline pilot for Capital/United Airlines, until forced retirement due to his illness. I know he flew Corsairs, and apparently moved to F9Fs. Record says VMA-333, VMA-212, VMF-314, AES-12

Comments: I am the daughter of Bernard Reszczynski, who served in the Marine Corps from 1953 until 1957. He was in boot camp in Parris Island. He also was in Kaneohe, Hawaii in (I believe) 1955 or '56. He originated from Wheeling, West Virginia. I found his name and a picture of him on the yellowfootprints website and am looking for any pictures that anyone has and would like to share, or just simply if you knew him. He is now 80 years old.

During the month of May 1956 our squadron flew 4,276.2 hours with AD aircraft. No one in the history of aviation has ever beaten that record. I would like to reach other Marines that served during that time.

Comments: I was in VMA 212 Ordnance at K-18 then K-6 during the time period Apr '52 to Feb '53. There were many long days, and at times it was hard work lifting those bombs and rockets onto the Corsairs. But, we usually had some time for fun too - cards, dominos, volleyball, snow-ball fights, and "shooting the bull". We all took pride in our jobs, doing our part so the squadron could accomplish its mission.
