Major John C. Egan was a renowned, courageous and skilled pilot during World War II, particularly celebrated for his leadership in the skies over Europe. Serving as a squadron commander in the 418th Bomb Squadron, 100th Bomb Group of the United States Army Air Forces, Egan, in his trademark sheepskin jacket, flew on over a dozen combat missions with the 100th. His daring missions often involved escorting bombers deep into enemy territory, where he faced relentless anti-aircraft fire and fierce opposition from German fighter planes. For his extraordinary valor and leadership, Egan was awarded the prestigious Distinguished Service Cross, among other commendations, cementing his place as one of the most distinguished pilots of the war.
