Action over Rabaul, December 1943: Major Marion E. Carl, commander of Marine Fighter Squadron VMF223, flying escort for Marine B-25 bombers. A Japanese “Tony” jumps the bombers, and Carl closes in. The Japanese plane is hit on Carl’s first pass, hence the name of the image: “Those Clouds Won’t Help You Now.” For Maj. Carl, later General Carl, it was his seventeenth victory.
I have tried to capture the proud heritage of Marine aviation with this image, as well as pay tribute to General Marion E. Carl, a man I believe typifies the best of Marine aviation. – WP
Each print has been hand-countersigned by Marine Ace Marion E. Carl (General Carl)
