Operation Yap Film:

Coleman Crew Memorial Service on Yap Video: On Wednesday, October 26, 2005 on the bow of the Mnuw, Yap Island we gathered with several new friends and chiefs (Andrew Ruepong, Paramount Chief of Yap and Chief of Rul, Bruno Tharngan, Chairman of the Council of Pilung and Chief of Ma’ap and Martin Yinug, FSM Supreme Court Justice) to pay our respect to the Coleman crew. Pat gave a moving speech about the crew and the events of June 25, 1944 concluding his talk with a reading of all ten names of the crew. The chiefs spoke briefly and extended their apologies to Pat and I and the other families of the Coleman crew. In a moving closing Pat and Cherie tossed beautiful tropical flowers into the crystal blue waters in which the crew lie.

B-24 Color Footage from Truk Raid: 16 mm Color Film shot by Oscar Fitzhenry courtesy of Jeff Johnson. This footage was shot from the gunner's position on a B-24 during a raid over Truk. The video shows the B-24 formation with fighter escort bombing a target and returning to base. This film is an invaluable resource to help us witness a B-24 raid in the South Pacific in color. It's some of the best B-24 footage I have ever watched.

2nd Lt. Martin B. Unger Home Movie (Coleman Crew Navigator): The following home movie is courtesy of Martin Unger's sister, Cecile. The home video shows Martin home in New York City with his sisters and wife right before he departed for the pacific. The home movie brings the Coleman Crew history to life by showing Martin in real life and not just a name on a list of missing men from WWII. The movie clip helps us bring the memories of Martin back from January 1944.
