Action over Rabaul, December 1943: Major Marion E. Carl, commander of Marine Fighter Squadron VMF223, flying escort for Marien 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 painting, "Those Clouds Won't Help You Now." For Major Carl, later General Carl, it was his seventeenth victory.
