Info: #42-103984 "San Antonio Rose", Charles Ray, Nadzab, New Guinea, 1944
The 80th Fighter Squadron was first activated on 10 January 1942 at Mitchel Field in New York, just one month after the attack on Pearl Harbor . Originally designated as a pursuit squadron, they were redesignated in May 1942 as a fighter squadron, attached to the 8th Fighter Group. One of the early squadron commanders, Edward "Porky" Cragg named the Squadron "The Headhunters" after the local New Guinean Headhunter tribes who hated the Japanese and helped to rescue downed pilots. The squadron saw action against the Japanese in the Pacific including deployments in Australia, New Guinea, the Schouten Islands, Morotai, Leyte, Mindoro, and Japan. Lt. Charles B. Ray christened this P-38J with the name "San Antonio Rose" and flew it with the headhunters, eventually becoming their last Ace of the war.
