Dear Mr. Summers,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We search the National Archives Catalog and located Muster Rolls of U.S. Navy Ships, Stations, and Other Naval Activities, 01/01/1939-01/01/1949 in the Records of the Bureau of Naval Personnel (Record Group 24) but the digitized images for Patrol Bombing Squadron 23 (VPB-23) have not been added yet.
Therefore, we searched Ancestry and located muster rolls for the enlisted men only of VPB-23. Rosters for the officers of VPB-23 are not available. There may be a fee for using Ancestry. However, you may view these records online at one NARA's facilities for free via a NARA PC. For the nearest NARA location, please consult our web page at https://www.archives.gov/locations/.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
