On April 21, 1944, Lt. Cook Cleland, along with his Radioman/Gunner, W. J. Hisler, were flying SBD-5 Dauntless “White 39” of VB-16 assigned to the carrier USS Lexington (CV-16). On this day, near Hollandia, New Guinea, Cleland downed a Mitsubishi Ki-51 "Sonia" light bomber. On June 20, 1944, his gunner, Hisler, shot down an A6M Zero and damaged a second aircraft.
