The squadron is best known as the Black Sheep of World War II fame and for one of its commanding officers, Colonel Gregory “Pappy” Boyington, whose memoirs also inspired the 1970s television show Baa Baa Black Sheep, later syndicated as Black Sheep Squadron, which dramatized the squadron’s exploits during the war.
