The feat was so remarkable that General MacArthur gave them a special commendation. When a high ranking naval officer asked how the PBY squadron could accomplish such destruction of the Japanese warships with the limited capabilities of the PBY which was not designed for this type of action, the pilot replied, saying that they just didn't know that the PBY wasn't designed that way. He said that they just did it. Comment
