Last Known Activity
Lost on same day with
Maj. Pierre Carnagey - Exec in 2nd tour, MIA 12/23/43
Capt. James Brubaker - MIA 12/23/43

In late December and early January, they engaged in a series of large and deadly dogfights with the Japanese over Rabaul; eight Black Sheep pilots (including Pappy Boyington) were lost in an 11-day period from Dec.23 through Jan. 3. In these final days, Henry Miller moved up to Exec when Major Carnagey was lost, and then to acting CO when Greg Boyington disappeared. A few days later, the 'Black Sheep' flew their last combat mission, and as with the 'Swashbucklers', they were broken up, and a new team was designated VMF-214.
