AF015 Captain Donald J. Strait

King & Country

Don Strait flew with the 361st Fighter Squadron of the 356 Fighter Group and became their top ace with 131/2 victories… all but 3 of them flying the P51 “Mustang”. After WW2 he joined the New Jersey Air National Guard and served in Korea and retired in 1978 as a Major General. Our new figure shows him picking up his parachute prior to mounting his “Mustang”.
