keith A is on a distinguished road
major Alexander Gillis VMF-311 in WW2?

I am interested in finding out more about WW2 flyers of the USN and USMC who claim victories in Korea.

I know that Plog was with VB-83 (SB2C), Amen was with VC-82 (FM2) and Lamb with VF-27 and 51 (F6F); the careers of Bolt and Glenn are well-known but I am especially interested in finding of this officer's flying career. I know he flew with VMF-311 and was assigned to the USAF to fly F-86 in 1952. I also know he flew in Vietnam but can anyone tell me if he flew combat missions in WW2 and if so, with which squadron and when?

regards

Keith
