the Neutrality act and penalties Mac and Chennault were facing

By the way, they both, as well as the Hawk 75, had a bounty on their heads and 2 Japanese squadrons were assigned to take the Hawk down, they never did. They could be fined $2000.00, jailed and lose their citizenship. What did they say to that you ask— Chennault said, “I guess I am Chinese.” Mac wrote home (letter is in the book) that he could not leave the Chinese at the one time in history that they needed him the most. They stayed. Mac left in 1947.
