Retired Col. Clarence "Bud" Anderson, who was assigned to the 357th Fighter Group, was one of America's top aces in the P-51 Mustang, scoring more than 16 kills and becoming a triple ace in World War II.
Mustangs helped ensure allied air superiority from 1944 through the end of the war. Their mission evolved from simply escorting bomber missions into Germany to, in the words of Gen. Jimmy Doolittle, "killing the Luftwaffe," by aggressively pursuing any aircraft in the skies, whether or not they were attacking bombers. The steady and disastrous attrition of the Luftwaffe opened up avenues for the Allies to press on into Germany on the ground, unhindered by German air attack.
