Good Afternoon Michael! Thanks for your response to my inquiry.

The information you asked for is as follows:

Colonel Gribbin was the Commanding Officer of VMF-122 when he was involved in a unfortunate flight line accident. The Colonel was in a coma for almost a year in Florida before passing away.  He was a veteran of World War II and Korea, and the Colonel was awarded the Navy Cross in World War II.

I hope this information will be of help to you.  Thanks again for your help. I remain.

Semper Fidelis,
Charles M. Lyons
