Jack Wardell Petit
I also had a relative that was a member of VMF 215, and enjoyed the letter on your web page from Mr. Aldrich. My relative was named Jack Petit and was unfortunately Missing in Action in WWII. I recently created this web page in his honor. Maybe it will give you some insight to what things were like for the Corsair pilots in WWII. I am sure he must have know Mr. Aldrich. I think I have a picture of him on the website I created for Jack Petit. I am not expert or great historian, this is just what I gathered from different sources. Anyway, here it is.
