24 August 1942 14 Wildcats took off to intercept an incoming Japanese force of six Nakajima Kate dive-bombers and 15 escorting Zero fighters . These four kills (added to one Zero at Midway) made me an ace, the first in Marine Corps history, but that thought didn't occur to me at the time. We were far too busy and more concerned about our losses." State: City: Date: 1940's
