The Marines’ Lost Squadron – The Odyssey of VMF-422

December 15, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Marine Fighter Squadron 422 was a group of twenty-four typical young Americans trained to fly the famous F4U Corsair into combat with the legendary Japanese Zero. When they arrived in the Pacific, they suddenly found that not all their enemies carried guns. Their two most dangerous and merciless adversaries were the fury of a tropical typhoon and the heartless whims of a Marine Corps general. Learn about this forgotten Second World War tragedy, that should be remembered by all!
