Yes, but those two islands are part of the chain of islands know as the Aleutian Islands. Just like Ohau is part of the Hawaiian islands.

You are right.

Quote:
Roosevelt signed an unpublished (secret) executive order in May 1940 allowing U.S. military personnel to resign from the service so that they could participate in a covert operation in China: the American Volunteer Group, also known as Chennault's Flying Tigers. Over a seven-month period, Chennault's Flying Tigers destroyed an estimated 600 Japanese aircraft, sunk numerous Japanese ships, and stalled the Japanese invasion of Burma.

Nice one Fox. Lilya Litvyak recorded a record 12 kills before she was shot down and killed on 01/08/1943. She is the highest-scoring female pilot of all time.
