Devil Dog squadron flew Blackhawks when The War started. They were old but serviceable fighters, weathered by a century of service to America. The Devil Dogs were centuries older, descended from the original Marine fighter demonstration squadron. The first one. The one that fought in the World Wars, the Jihad, and went to space with us. There is much history in that squadron. And for a retired unit there was much fire as well. They acquired Hellcats in time to fight at the Battle of Fort Wichita and the expanded Devil Dogs continued to fly upgraded versions of them until War’s End and beyond.
