There is a cut-down version of the HMM/VMM-265 Veterans Association master spreadsheet of members’ information available to signed-in members. It has columns for last name, first name, middle initial, nickname, status, and years served. If the “Status” column is blank then we have either an email or snail-mail address (or both) for that person. If you know of someone who should be on the list but isn’t, please send the name to the Webmaster, along with whatever information you remember or can find.
Here are a few tips for using the list:
1. If the “Status” column shows “MIA” it means that, as far as we know, that person is alive but we have no contact information. If you have any more information about any of these missing Marines please pass it on to the Webmaster.
2. The list is searchable. If you want to know if a name is on the list just enter it in the search box.
3. The list is sortable on all of the column headings. Just click on the up or down arrow in the column name to get it sorted on that value. Click the other arrow and it will sort in the other direction. For example, suppose you would like to see all of the names who served within a particular time frame. Just click on the up or down arrow in the “years served” column and, mirabile dictu, it is sorted. Just scroll down and find your time block. Want it sorted the other way? Just click the other arrow! Want to check the MIAs? Just click on the “Status” column and scroll down. RTBs? Same thing.
4. Regrettably, privacy concerns prevent our posting of contact information, even in the members-only section. However, if you see someone with whom you would like to establish contact you may send the name, along with your own contact information (including a physical mailing address) and any other information you would like to convey, to the Webmaster, who will pass it on. The Webmaster link will open a form and you can just put your request into the form and submit it.
