Forrest Parham enlisted in the Army and rose to rank of Colonel. He scored three victories over Japanese aircraft while flying the P-40N before transitioning to the P-51B and adding two more to make ace with five. He was shot down over Shanghai in April 1945, but evaded capture and returning to his unit a month later.
