***Borrowed from Black Sheep Aces
Aces of Marine Fighting Squadron (VMF) 214***
Henry Allan McCartney was a combat veteran before he joined the Black Sheep, and had already shot down 4 planes with VMO-251 and VMF-121. He was credited with one kill as a Black Sheep, making him an ace.
He began the war as a dive bomber pilot, with VMSB-142 in early 1943, but eagerly transferred to VMO-251, which was reorganized into a fighter squadron. He shot down a Betty over Guadalacanal, and then got three Zekes with VMF-121.
He made ace by shooting down a Zero on Sept. 23. He concluded his stint with the Black Sheep after their first R&R in Australia.
