Col R. Bruce Porter USMC Ace
Colonel R. Bruce Porter was born on August 18, 1920, in Salina, Utah. While attending the University of Southern California (USC), he and his friend, Roy Margrave, went to the Forum to see the movie “Flight Command”. Inspired and wanting to become a pilot, a month later he and Roy drove to Long Beach, California, to the Navy Recruiting office to sign up and become “Cadets for Naval Aviation”. After filling out the paperwork, a Marine Corps Captain called them into his cramped office. He got their paperwork from the Navy Chief Petty Officer, threw it in the trashcan, and said, “Boys, you look like Marine material to me!” As Bruce Porter describes it in his best selling autobiography “Ace, A Marine Night-Fighter Pilot in World War II”, “by the time I left that cramped office, I felt like a Marine.” After receiving flight training at Pensacola Naval Air Station, and still a Marine Corps Cadet, he was transferred to Opa-Locke, Florida, for final training, flying F3Fs and old dive-bombers. On July 25, 1941, he received his Wings of Gold and commission as a Second Lieutenant while at Opa-Locke, Florida. He was assigned to VMF-121, flying the F4F-3 Wildcat (specifications), with it’s notorious 28-turn hand-cranked retractable landing gear. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, he was assigned to VMF-111 in February, 1942, and after being promoted to Captain, was assigned to VMF-441 in October, 1942. In the spring of 1943, he was re-assigned to VMF-121, flying the new Chance-Vought F4U Corsair. In February, 1944, he reported to VMF(N)-544 at Cherry Point, North Carolina, to begin night-fighter training in the F6F Hellcat (specifications). On February 2, 1945, half of VMF(N)-544 was redesignated and made part of VMF-511, and was assigned to the escort carrier Block Island II (CVE-106). By April 11, 1945, he had 43 carrier landings to his credit, with about half of them at night. He was assigned to VMF(N)-542 as the Executive Officer and became the Commanding Officer of the squadron on May 22, 1945.

Greg “Pappy” Boyington and Singing in the Rain
“After a few drinks, I began wondering aloud at the huge mirror that was hanging behind the bar, and I finally asked the bartender where on earth it had been dug up. ‘Hell, Captain,’ the sergeant-bartender told me, ‘they brought that over here from the Fijis in a B-24.’ I gathered that at least one of the several generals then headquartered in Espiritu Santo was behind the acquisition, but before I could ask, Major Boyington blew in out of the rain. ‘Guess what? The general has given me a chance at combat again!’ Greg had already amply celebrated his return to flight status with General Moore, but he insisted on celebrating with his good buddies, Ras, Fateye, and Bruce. The bartender poured us each a stiff drink, and we all downed them in a swallow. Greg was so excited that he gave out a great yell of joy and hurled his shot glass right through the big imported mirror. The four of us were gone from there before the last of the glass slivers had cascaded to the deck. As Ras slewed the jeep around the first corner on the way out of the headquarters compound, someone thrust a bottle he had grabbed off the bar into my hand, and I chugged a swallow, fighting to stay in the jeep as it slid all over the rain-soaked track. By the time the bottle came back to me, I was not paying any attention to the road. Suddenly, Greg leaned over beside me and delivered a sharp blow to the back of Ras’s neck. The jeep swerved off the road and lurched to a stop in a viscous mud. We all jumped out of the jeep, hooting and hollering and singing in the rain. We played in the mud until all the liquor was gone, then we pushed the mired jeep back to the roadway and pointed it in the direction of the fighter
heading out in 6hrs.
ok, it all worked out fine, so some notes on the setup/contents:
rear dry bag: holds food – 4 backpacking meals (needed way less)
cook kit – markhill devil stove, small alu pot, plasticware, couple bags of bulk snacks like cashews and apricots
frame bag: 2L platypus big zip bladder, tool kit, first aid kit, stove fuel (canister that screws into stove), extra socks
right mini pannier: pump, battery tube for light, extra light batts, extra headlamp batts, cell phone charger (AA powered), extra AA’s, tecnu, sunscreen, hydrocortizone, pack towel, hex set
left mini pannier: snacks (started out with bars, but filled it with whatever i could find during the trip), headlamp, skeletool, bag balm
stem bag: phone, wipes, snacks, toothbrush/paste, more snacks, extra maps, vitamins, ibu profen, electrolyte drops, trash, aquamira purifying drops.
map platform: compass, maps
front dry bag: secured with simple webbing/clips, holds 2 3’x7′ footprints, mosq. net, 55+ sleeping bag, 4 alu stakes, parachute cord, plastic hooks, space blanket, flip flops (lashed to front)
mat: cut down about a foot in length and 5in in width, stuffed extra shirt (polartec longsleeve) and soccer shorts. lashed to front dry bag
bars: computer, gloves (when not worn), and homebrew led light
on body thin wool shirt, wool socks (either thin or semi thick), surf trunks, chrome kursk shoes, bern helmet, rubber band wallet
comments: the extra surly endo tube is huge, going to switch to a schwalbe 26×3 to save some space. should have gone with an alcohol stove – mine wigged out last time i tested it and i didn’t want to trust it. A water bottle for denautred alc (stove fuel) would have fit the frame bag space better and save weight.
going to reshape the stem bag so it isn’t so clunky or re-sew it.
i crashed on singletrack and ripped the velcro out of the frame bag in a couple spots – it stayed put just fine. going to double stitch the bag all the way around – could see some very stressed spots.
