This is a true story of an American WWII Fighter Ace,  Lt Gordon H. McDaniel of Sweetwater, Tennessee.  
He was a member of the 325th Fighter Group, the "Checkertail Clan". His friends called him Mac.
Anybody who doesn't have fear is an idiot. It's just that you must make the fear work for you. Hell when somebody shot
at me, it made me madder than hell, and all I wanted to do was shoot back.

— Brigadier General Robin Olds, USAF.

"A top World War II ace once said that fighter pilots fall into two broad categories: those who go out to kill and those who,
secretly, desperately, know they are going to get killed—the hunters and the hunted."

General Nathan F. Twining, USAF
318th Fighter Pilot
Lt  J.G. Pace
One of the pilots that got a
victory on March 14, 1945
