Pappy Boyington WW II Marine Ace Pilot Signed 1975 Chatanika Alaska Cover Framed

 


PAPPY BOYINGTON

Original 1975 Pappy Boyington signed Chatanika Alaska First Day Cover. Matted and framed overall size 17 1/2'' x  14 1/2''.

Gregory "Pappy" Boyington (December 4, 1912 – January 11, 1988) was a highly decorated American combat pilot who was a United States Marine Corpsfighter ace during World War II. He received both the Medal of Honor and the Navy Cross.

Boyington was initially a Warhawk combat pilot with the legendary "Flying Tigers" (1st American Volunteer Group) in the Republic of China Air Force in Burmaat the end of 1941 and part of 1942; during the military conflict between China and Japan, and the beginning of World War II.

In September 1942, he rejoined the Marine Corps (aviator since 1937). In early 1943, he deployed to the South Pacific and began flying on combat missions as a Marine F4U Corsair fighter pilot. In September 1943, he took command of U.S. Marine Corps fighter squadron ("Black Sheep"). In January 1944, Boyington, outnumbered by Japanese "Zero" planes, was shot down into the Pacific Ocean after downing an enemy plane (he destroyed 26 enemy planes). He was captured by a Japanese submarine crew and was a prisoner of war for over a year and a half. He was released shortly before the surrender of Japan.
