Biographical / Historical:
Richard Rash was a Marine Corps aviator who flew in World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. During World War II, Rash flew Grumman F4F Wildcats and Corsairs, as he accompanied dive bombers and torpedo bombers on their missions. After World War II, Rash opted for duty in China, and reported to VMF-211. His tour of China ended with the Communist takeover in 1949. He then went on several tours of duty in Southern Europe and the Mediterranean, including service in Greece, Turkey, Spain, and Italy. Subsequently, Rash was called to duty in the Korean war, and later the Vietnam war, before retiring in 1973. During the Korean and Vietnam eras, he flew the following aircraft: North American Sabre F-86, Grumman F9F-5, McDonnell F2H-2, North American FJ-2; Grumman F8F-8, Douglas AD, and Beechcraft SNB.
