James "Booker" Washington led the 93rd Infantry Division of the United States Army. He and the 93rd were in Papua New Guinea at the time Wade Jackson crashes his SBD Dauntless. Washington, with the help of Corporal Lewis Howard, save Jackson and Mateo Hernandez. The two join Washington in defeating the Imperial Japanese Army located on the island. During this, Howard was shot, seemingly killing him. To honor his "death", Washington gives Jackson, Howard's flamethrower.
