“Gregory (Pappy) Boyington downed six Japanese aircraft in China when he was apart of the American Volunteer Group. He added 22 additional downs as a Marine aviator, which brought his total to 28. He took command of the Marine Fighter Squadron 214 in September 1943. In January 1944, he was shot down over the St. George Channel, north of New Britain, fished from the water by an enemy submarine, and made a prisoner of war. He remained on the Japanese home islands until the end of the war, after which he learned that he had been awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously!”
