~SOLD~ LENOX Jack

Lt. Col. Jack Lenox

Lt. Col. Jack Lenox flew P-38s with the 14th Fighter Group. He’s one of 2,500 pilots that graduated as staff sergeants early in the war, when most pilots received their gold bars upon graduation from flight school. Before his deployment overseas, Lenox received a promotion to flight officer (equivalent to a warrant officer today). He and his classmates trained to fly P-51s, but when they arrived in North Africa, his assignment was flying P-38s; he went into combat with no gunnery practice.
On his first mission, his flight encountered German aircraft that were attacking the bomber formation they were escorting. During the encounter, he dived in his P-38 at 550 mph, pulled out behind four Me-109s and started shooting. To his dismay, he was going so fast that he flew right on through the enemy formation, and then they were on his tail. He climbed out so fast that he grayed out. When his vision cleared, no enemy aircraft were in sight and he couldn’t find the group CO, on whose wing he was supposed to be flying. Then he spotted another lone P-38 heading in the correct direction and decided to join up with him. It turned out to be his group CO, who thought Lenox had been with him all the time. Lenox received his commission as a second lieutenant in April 1944.
