Looking for a Marine at Yontan airfield 4Apr45

I'm searching for a marine who was at Yontan airfield, Okinawa on 4 April 45. Our family only knows him as "Red." He was a member of a rescue team that went to get a downed crew in a TBM torpedo bomber. One of the crew was my father, Robert White. The family story is that the two of them became friends. In fact Red was a member of my folks wedding party. I would like to re-establish our acquaintance. I would appreciate any information as to who this marine is. Thanks.
