VF-84 “Wolf Gang” was established on May 1, 1944. Most of its pilots were former members of VF-17 “Jolly Rogers”. The Commanding Officer was Lt. Cdr. Roger Hedrick, former XO of VF-17. Because so many members were ex “Jolly Rogers”, Hedrick tried to have VF-84 bare the name but was refused. VF-84 took part in the final assaults on the Japanese at Iwo Jima, the raids on Tokyo, sinking of the Yamato and Okinawa. The squadron was deactivated on October 8, 1945.Realistic panel lines
