SKU: 752970008356
Patrol Bombing Squadron Seventy One (VPB-71) was originally established as VP-12F on November 1, 1935 in NAS Seattle, Washington. It was during World War II, in 1944, after reorganization of fleet patrols and several re-designations, that the squadron became VPB-71. Soon after they began flying Black Cat night operations in the South Pacific, Formosa and along the coast of China. VPB-71 is credited with sinking around 85,000 tons of Japanese shipping vessels on these dangerous missions, which earned them the Navy Unit Commendation. Pair this smoking black cats shirt with a shearling bomber jacket to stay warm in the winter.
