Gregory “Pappy” Boyington Grave

Gregory “Pappy” Boyington was a Marine Corps fighter pilot during the Second World War who was awarded the Medal of Honor for his heroic combat actions. His flying career began with the Marine Corps. He resigned his commission to join the Flying Tigers in 1941. He returned to the Corps when the U.S. entered World War II.

While fighting on Guadalcanal, he was given the nickname “Gramps” because he was at least ten years older than most of the men he commanded. This moniker was modified to “Pappy” based upon a variation of the Whiffenpoof Song by Paul “Moon” Mullen, one of his pilots. Boyington was immortalized in the television series Baa Baa Black Sheep, a dramatization of his unit’s World War II exploits.

Boyington is interred close to boxing legend Joe Louis. As a recipient of the Medal of Honor, the inscriptions on his grave marker are highlighted in gold.
