On December 7, 1941 during the Japanese raid on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, 2nd Lt. George Welch and 2nd Lt. Kenneth Taylor raced back to Wheeler Field airfield and managed to get their P-40s airborne against overwhelming odds. The P-40s were armed only with 30 caliber wing guns and when their ammo that ran out they returned to refuel and rearm with 50 caliber ammunition and renewed their airborne efforts. 2nd Lt. Welch scored 4 aerial victories while 2nd Lt Taylor scored at least 2 victories. They both received the DSC.

The Curtiss P-40 Warhawk was a single-engine fighter and ground attack aircraft. First flown on October 14, 1938, the P-40 was used by most Allied powers during World War II, and remained in service until the end of the war. The P-40 performed well as an air superiority fighter, at times suffering severe losses but also taking a very heavy toll of enemy aircraft. It was the third most produced American fighter aircraft after the P-51 and P-47. By November 1944 when production of the P-40 ended, 13,738 had been built.
