Lieutenant D.C. "Chico" Freeman

Lieut “Chico” Freeman flew Corsairs first with VF-17 and then transferred over to VF84 on the USS Bunker Hill.  While there, he upped his final score to 9 “Kills”.

Tom Blackburn was the U.S. Navy’s top-scoring Corsair “ace” with 11 “kills” to his credit. A born leader, he came from a family of Naval officers. His most famous command was VF-17 “The Jolly Rogers”. He led the squadron from January 1943 until May 1944. During this time they shot down 154 Japanese aircraft, sank 5 transport ships and produced 12 other F4U “aces”.
