Flying the happy skies with the VMF-214.

In Pappy Boyington's days in Command of the Black Sheep Squadron, their Identifier WAS VMF-214.

Today's Black Sheep Squadron, (still Marines), is VMA-214. I still don't know why the change from "F" to "A", but
this is what today's Black Sheep Squadron Number is: VMA-214.

God Bless the Black Sheep. God Bless the real Pappy Boyington,
and God Bless Robert Conrad for his rendition of Pappy.

R.I.P. Robert Conrad.

Wikipedia: VMA-214 - Black Sheep.

[EDIT 2:]

Looks like the change from "VMF-214" to "VMA-214" hit during the Vietnam War.
