USAB, Martin (Deceased) c/0 His Daugher Christine Stulik christinestulik@aol.com "...My Dad, Martin Usab, was with the VPB-108. He flew on the Privateer and the Liberator. Waist gun position and Plane Captain. My son has his squadron book, log book, medals and citations all in safe keeping. Would share all this for those who might have known Dad. I can find out the information soon. He flew on the "Nippo Nippin Kitten" and the "Flying Dutchman" I believe. If memory serves me (will check later) the crews were #11 and #13. We have lots of photographs of the crews and planes in the Pacific. Hope this helps. Will verify soon, please forgive mistakes. Sadly, he passed away in 1984. His most fond memories were of that time. His life was successful, in so many ways, we were proud to know him, and love him, Regards..." [01SEP2001]
