I'll take a stab at answering your questions, but WW2 Marine aviation is not one of my specialties. (Thanks, steve, for the kind words).
I looked back at your earlier post. If your dad truly stayed in CA during the entire war, it appears that he was assigned to different units who were training in CA.When they were sent oveseas, he was assigned to a different unit. Bases in CA had their own defensive units (anti-aircraft gun batteries) to protect against any attack by Japanese forces on the west coast. (My lack of knowledge of Marine aviation unit structure makes me wonder why he would be assigned to specific squadrons, rather than to a specific base operations.)
He was probably assigned to different units near the end of the war as needed, thus his transfer to Hawaii as an MP.
See post 10907 on this board.I'd write to the National Personnel Records Center for a copy of his records (follow the link in message 10907).Also specify you want medical records (you're entitled to them as next of kin). Don't let them use they're typical excuse that records were lost in the 1973 fire there-- no Navy or Marine files were touched in the fire.
Contact your local VA office and get copies of his records, also.
Obviously the war affected people in many different ways.Maybe his medical records will tell you if something happened to him at that time.
