In 1942, George Rarey, a young cartoonist and commercial artist, was drafted into the Army Air Corps. He flew a P-47 before he drove a car. During his service he kept a cartoon journal of daily life in the 379th Fighter Squadron. A few weeks after D-Day, Rarey was killed in combat over France.

This is a selection of some of his work and notes contributed by members of his unit and family. The sketchbook includes anecdotes, portraits and profiles of his fellow aviators, and a collection of airplane nose art.

A bound hardcopy of this and other art is available for purchase from Damon Rarey.  This material is made available with special permission form the Rarey family.
