These are the men of the Transportation, Refueling and Motor pool Sections: 
Rodgers, Sidlisk, rollins, Helms, Lane, Joseph, Bostic, Manning, Reed, Fournier, Hoffman, Lt. Wods, Heiner, Ray.

Here you can see that the Motorpool does everything that is needed to keep
the 34th Fighter Squadron in flying operation.  Every part of the operation
on Ie Shima is like a link in a chain, every department needs to work to keep
the squadron and it's pilots ready to fly and win.  Nothing less will do.
I hear People say, "What did you do in the military"  Most people think that if
you join the military you are going to be jumping in a foxhole and shooting a gun.
However, the largest part of the military is support for the few that actually
do the real fighting that Hollywood is so interest in showing on their movies.
But working in the Army, Navy, Air Force or Marines means that you must
be able to do a lot of jobs other than carry a gun.
I had twelve years in military service and I shot an M1 and a .22 with only
19 shots.  So in twelve years, I shot 22 bullets in the whole time and three
of them were blanks.  Can you believe it.
