Painting - Oil On Canvas
Artwork by Artist & Marine Veteran Dean Glorso, will be displayed on his 1955 Chevy pickup Memorial Day 2013 - Commerce City, CO. The work is titled �Bombing Bats� The painting depicts a Grumman A6A Intruder Jet, as was flown by Marine All Weather Attack Squadron 242 during the Vietnam Conflict. In late 1966, �242� joined the 1st Marine Aircraft Wing at Da Nang Air Base, Republic of Vietnam and by November of that year, was participating in combat operations against the Viet Cong and the North Vietnamese Army. Initially the squadron supported allied ground forces, but during April 1967, the Bats were also assigned to the first of many Operation Rolling Thunder missions (deep strikes) over North Vietnam. The squadron, utilizing the unique capabilities of the A-6, flew patrols over North Vietnam until the bombing halt late in 1968. Until the squadron�s departure from Vietnam on September 8, 1970, the Bats continued supporting allied forces in South Vietnam, as well as flying sorties against the Ho Chi Minh Trail in North Vietnam and central Laos. During the squadron�s tour in the Republic of Vietnam, VMA(AW)-242 logged 16,783 combat sorties and delivered 85,990 tons of ordnance. During the Vietnam War, the squadron, known as the Batmen was made up of 250 Marines and about 12 aircraft while serving in Vietnam.
Many pilots and bombardier/navigators of Marine All Weather Attack Squadron 242 were lost or missing in action over North Vietnam, Laos, and South Vietnam during the unit�s 4 year tour in country. This painting is being shown to honor these brave men.
