In 1943, a group of twenty-seven young men under the leadership of Major Gregory "Pappy" Boyington (just returned from a year's tour in China as a member of the 1st American Volunteer Group (The Flying Tigers)) were joined together to form the original "Black sheep" of Marine Attack Squadron 214 (VMA-214).
The Black Sheep fought for 84 days and piled up a record of 203 Japanese planes destroyed or damaged, produced nine fighter aces with 97 confirmed air-to-air kills, sank several troop transports and supply ships, destroyed many installations, in addition to numerous other victories. For their actions, the original Black Sheep were awarded the Presidential Unit Citation for extraordinary heroism in action.
