Oski in WWII

In 1942, Rockwell left Berkeley to join the military during World War II. He and a group of classmates formed a U.S. Naval Air Corps squadron called the “Flying Golden Bears” that was deployed to the Pacific and East Asia. Rockwell designed the squadron’s symbol – Oski flying over the clouds carrying a lightning bolt like a marching baton. It was painted on the fuselages of the squadron’s planes.
