Maj. Richard I. Bong with 40 kills was America's Ace of aces. He was a actually a poor shot but he compensated with his flying skills. Bong flew his P-38 so close that it was almost impossible to miss. On Dec 12, 1944, Bong was awarded the Medal of Honor by Gen. Douglas MacArthur and married his sweetheart, Marge Vattendahl 5 days later. Sadly, he was killed while testing a new P-80 jet on 6 Aug. 1945.
