Greg "Pappy" Boyington Interview (Not the radio or tv talk show interview) Part 5 (Final)

Boyington's total score recognized by the American Fighter Aces Association is 24: 2 with the AVG and 22 claimed with the Marine Corps.

Many sources, such as the back of the Bantam Books edition of his autobiography, claim that he shot down 28 planes (6 with the AVG, 22 with the Marines).

After the war, Boyington insisted on the term "victories" rather than "kills", and was known to lose his temper over the issue.
