I received the email below on Friday:

I wanted to pass this in formation on to you and thank you for your help in pulling together information related to VMF-213.

I have added my father’s obituary to the web site with his records and several pictures.


Thank you again,

John Livingood


For those of yu not familiar with Dco Livingood--

Dr. William C. Livingood, also known as Doc Livingood, served as a Navy Lieutenant assigned as the Fight Surgeon for Marine Fighter Squadron VMF-213, the Hellhawks, in 1943 during its three combat tours of duty in the Solomon Islands’ Campaign. While assigned to the Hellhawks, Doc Livingood recorded numerous events and retained certain documents concerning his squadron and the Marine pilots with whom he served.

His son John has posted most of his father's diaries the VMF-213 website:
