Howard Young’s first encounter with the Japanese was on December 7, 1941 when U.S. aircraft returning from Wake Island met the Japanese aircraft at Pearl Harbor. In February 1942, under Young’s command, Air Group Six made the first attack on Japanese held territory. Young took part in raids on the Marshall and Gilbert Islands and later Marcus and Wake Islands. His actions of leading two successful raids on February 1, 1942 earned Young the DFC. In April of 1942 he was promoted to Carrier Air Group Commander.

The Douglas SBD Dauntless was the main dive bomber of the US Navy from mid-1940 to 1944 when it was supplanted, although not entirely replaced, by the SB2C Helldiver. The Dauntless was used in every major Pacific conflict including the Battle of the Philippine Sea in June 1944. A total of 5,936 SBDs were produced.
