Pilot Name Biography Summary
William Lewis Curry > In 1940 he was assigned to the recently activated 36th Pursuit Group and the 22nd Pursuit Squadron as a flight commander.

In January 1941 the group was transferred to Puerto Rico and equipped with P-40's and P-39's. As Group Operations Officer he instigated a dive bombing training program, even though it was still prohibited by regulations.
