One of the thrills from my Missing Air Project over the years has been locating family, friends and former war buddies of the men lost over Yap Island. I have enjoyed numerous contacts over the years and have made a lot of new friends from my project. However, the downside to the project is that many of the war buddies, family and friends are old therefore the downside of my project is that I keep hearing about them passing away. On a number of occasions I have receive an email to call someone who has information only to contact them in a few days to find out they passed away. Sadly we lost Gaylord Greenfield recently. He was one of the men from Marine squadron VMF-114 who took time to send me his memories of his missions to Yap and the men from his squadron who were lost over the island. You can read his memories of Yap missions at the link below. Gaylord is now part of the ages but remembered!

Hi Pat: We lost my dad this past January at 92 years old. I wanted to thank you for posting his memories of combat flying on your web page. I had hoped to take him back to the South Pacific one day but we just ran out of time. I look at the article from time to time when I think about him.. I called his surviving squadron members and it seems that only 5 or 6 survive out of the original 40. They are going fast. Thanks again. Pete Greenfield


Respectfully,

-Pat
