Comments: I know this forum is VMF 212, but my father was

believed to be in the 1st MAW VMF 212, and 214. He

worked on Hellcats, and maybe a few more, like F6F,

F4F-4, or P-40 fighters.



Does anyone know if there is a VMF -221 anywhere on

this site?



In all the 22-1/2 years of my father, VINCENT JOHN

TOBIN, proudly serving in the USMC, during WWII,

Korean, and Vietnam conflicts, in researching his VMF-

221 Squadron, I can not see it anywhere on this site.

Does this list exist, or has it not been created yet?

If it does exist, can you please directly me to that

link? I'm trying to find possible survivors of my

Father's units. Thank you! Sincerely, Jim Tobin



He also was in WWII, Korea, and

Vietnam, with the 1st Marine MAG-21,VMF 212,and 214.

Later he worked on C-130 transport division. VMR

152,252,253, and VMGR 352 Iwakuni, Japan.

Comments: My father, Maj. Robert Brannon Clay, was a pilot in VMF 212 in/around 1950. I remember his description of a Corsair that was attacked by a MIG. He said the MIG made a high side run on the Corsair, but at the last moment the Corsair driver broke to one side and up, and that as the MIG slid by a little below and to the other side, the Corsair was able to roll back over/down and line up the MIG. He triggered a salvo of rockets (all of them according to the story) and apparently at least one struck. Guns weren't mentioned. The sense I got was that the MIG had to reduce speed to a range where it's handling wasn't crisp, but the Corsair's was, and that the Corsair driver was able to take advantage of it, snap out of the way and then roll back to fire on the MIG as it plowed by in a mushy turn.

Unrelated to this story, but part of VMA 212 I think, a name I remember: "Moose" Trainer
Perhaps it will ring a bell with someone.

Comments: My father was
TSGT.Charley "L" Radford. He was a Marine fighter pilot. The second week
of September 1950, he left my mother and I in Waco, Texas with my grandparents and went to Korea.

All I have of his military record is his flight log. The last entry in his flight log is December 3, 1950. The previous entries indicate that he was flying an
F4U-5 for "strike", "recon.", "escort", and "close air support".

I would really like to know more about what he did and how he died. I would also like to get in touch with anyone who knew him.

Comments: My father, Lt. Col. Frank W. Daugherty Sr, Retired USMC, is looking for those who served with him in VMF-212 "Devil Cats" in Korea (or previsously in WW II in the NAVY SINPAC 3 Mar Airwing VMF in missions to Guam, Okinawa, Kwajawline, and others.) He says "There aren't many of us left".

In August 1950, Frank was again called to war to fight for our country in Korea, Squadron VMF-212 (known as the “Devil Cats“). Frank was heard broadcasting on the broad air channel that his plane had been hit. His F4U Corsair was shot in the gas tank by the enemy and had to glide in for landing on a strip in the mountains of Korea.

The word got out that Frank was a casualty of war. The word also got back to his wife in Texas that he had been shot down. His commanding officer had made contact with him on a private air channel, but because communication was shut down, couldnt relay that Frank was OK. They had to send a rescue squadron to pick him up and he wasn’t able to get back to his squadron in North Korea for 2 more days. Needless to say his wife was overjoyed when she heard he was OK. He returned from Korea in the Fall of 1951 where he served at the Naval Air Station in Corpus Christi, Texas. He was discharged in March 1952 and remained in active reserves completing a 28 year military career.

You may e-mail me or contact him directly.

Thanks,

Comments: I reported aboard the Bing Ding in San Diego in March 1951. The Bing Ding had just returned from her first mission to Korea and was headed for overhall in Bremerton Dry Dock. In July we headed back to San Diego and shake down. Then picked up some Squadrons and headed back for another mission off Korea. Enroute we stopped at Pearl Harbor, Subic Bay (PI), and Buckner Bay--Okinawa. From Buckner Bay we sailed thru the Formosa Straits to show the FLAG to RED China, then proceeded to Youkuska, Japan. Enroute to Youkuska we were hit by a typhoon and had to remain in Youkuska for some time for repair to the flight deck, cat walks and hangar doors. From Youkuska we proceeded to Sasebo, Japan for final preparations before heading to Korea. We spent Christmas 1951 off the West Coast of Korea and I participated in a Chorus on the Hangar Deck Christmas Eve--I remember singing "Sweet Adeline" and others that night. We put back in to Sasebo at the end of 1951 and during the first or second week of Janyary 1952 I was transfeered off the Bing Ding and reassigned to the USS Essex CV-9 off the East Coast of Korea. I have recently met one member of VMF-212 now living in Auburn, Washington.
