The most famous aerial fighting group of World War II, the Black Sheep Squadron officially shot down 100 planes and may have unofficially shot down another 100. Led by Major Gregory "Pappy" Boyington, the self-proclaimed "bad boy" of the Marines, in point of fact, the only so-called "screw-up" in the famed unit. The Black Sheep were a motley group of fly boys who rallied around their commander who inspired them where it counted most in combat.
