Where is the book available? My Dad, Edward Lukes, was a navigator in this unit and contributed photos to the book which he received a copy of. When he passed away the book went to my brother and he lives in a different state. so I would like to get one for my library.

My Father, Harold Lodge (Hal Lee) was a Marine Corps Aerial photographer and still photographer in Asia and China. I have stacks of his photos and memorabilia. I would love to find someone who knew him back then.

I inherited these same original photos when my grandfather Bernard Schilliger passed away just two weeks ago. I also have a great many personal shots that he took and the negatives. I’d love to hear from anyone who may have any info about his squadron and experience.
