 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
His 1st (of 7)  DISTINGUISHED FLYING CROSS CITATION READS:

For heroism and extraordinary achievement as Flight Officer and Division Leader in Marine Fighting Squadron TWO FOURTEEN during action against enemy Japanese forces in the Solomon Islands Area from March 14 to May 15 and from July 22 to Sept 1, 1943. Although his guns jammed during an interception mission over Guadalcanal, First Lieutenant Scarborough, with grim determination in the face of tremendous odds, continued his passes of enemy bombers and fighters until he finally restored one weapon to action and shot down a zero.Refusing to drop out of the fight despite his dangerously limited firepower, he pressed home his attacks until his own plane was so badly damaged that he had to make a dead stick landing with a severed rudder control cable. On two subsequent occasions he shot down four planes during escort to Shortland Islands and three while fighter cover foe a b-24 bombing against Kahili. His superb airmanship and aggressive fighting spirit were in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.
