This history of Marine Bombing Squadron Six-Thirteen (VMB-613) from its forming in October of 1943, through its decommissioning in November of 1945. The website currently consists of over 450 pages of text, original strike reports, and photographs. Many of the photographs were taken while the squadron was based on Kwajalein in the Marshall Islands. VMB-613 also had the unique distinction of being the only Marine Corps squadron to operate the 75mm cannon-armed PBJ-1H (B-25H) in combat. While overseas, VMB-613's missions entailed surveillance and strikes against the bypassed Japanese garrisons on Jaluit, Maloelap, Wotje, Mille, Ponape, Kusaie, Ocean and Nauru.
