PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a 18 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on The United States & WW II - Military Leaders - Greg "Pappy" Boyington. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

Gregory Boyington was born December 4, 1912, in Coeur d'Alene, ID, in the town of St. Maries. Boyington's parents divorced early in his life and he was raised by his mother and an alcoholic step-father.

He excelled in aviation and was known for commanding a group of misfit pilots of the VMF-214 fighter plane. The squadron initially lacked support personnel and possessed damaged or distressed aircraft. As many of the squadron's pilots had previously been unattached, they first wished to be called "Boyington's Bastards," but changed to "Black Sheep" for press purposes.

Boyington distinguished himself in the air, but struggled with alcohol throughout his life. On January 3, 1944, Boyington led a 48-plane force on a sweep over the Japanese base at Rabaul. As the fighting began, Boyington was seen downing his 26th kill but then became lost in the melee and was not seen again. Though considered killed or missing by his squadron, Boyington had been able to ditch his damaged aircraft. Landing in the water he was rescued by a Japanese submarine and taken prisoner.

Enduring a harsh existence as a POW, Boyington was liberated on August 29, 1945 following the dropping of the atom bombs. Returning to the United States, he claimed 2 additional kills during the Rabaul raid. In the euphoria of victory, these claims were not questioned and he was credited with a total of 28 making him the Marine Corps' top ace of the war. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for becoming an American fighter Ace.
