Lt L. M. Boykin
Commanding Officer, Fighting Squadron Four
As Executive Officer of the squadron up to the time he assumed command,
Lt Boykin early proved his ability to lead and to manage skillfully.
The confidence we placed in him was never broken, and the responsibility
of his position seemed only a stimulus to his constant and devoted
attempts to make our squadron a close-knit, able, and successful
organization. His efforts did not go unrewarded, and he will have always
our appreciation, liking, and respect. Good luck to you, Skipper.
