contributors. He flew with VB-8 aboard
USS Hornet in the BOM, and was group commander Stanhope Ring’s wingman
during the momentous first flight on 4 June 1942. Much of what the Roundtable has learned concerning the Hornet air
group at Midway and Santa Cruz, about Stanhope Ring and others in the air
group, and about flying the SBD Dauntless in combat has come from Clay.
finished WW2 as a flight instructor, then went on to fly F4U Corsairs in the
Korean War, including strikes against the infamous Bridges at Toko Ri. He retired from the Navy after a final tour
