By request: USMC VMF-216, "Bulldog Squadron"

I appreciate everyone who was interested in my story about my grandpa, the Marine pilot in WWII. This is the requested footage, with some additional awesome details concerning the Lieutenant's Corsair group - which, of course, was known as the Bulldogs.

The footage I referred to, where Grandpa has a smoke before getting the blood wiped off his head. He and two other Corsairs were returning from supporting a bomber run when they encountered more than 20 Japanese Zeros. He was the sole survivor.

This awesome info is due in large part to my uncle, Bob Marshall, Jr.
