WE AE LOSING THE BEST OF THE BEST

On the evening news was a story about the final reunion of 3 of the four pilots living who were members of the famous Lt. Col Jimmy Doolittle’s top secret air attack over Tokyo during WWII.

Frail but still spirited these brave men risked all for this country. Never before had B-25 medium bombers taken off an American aircraft carrier because of the short flying deck, but Doolittle said it could be done and he trained 16 crews to fly those planes. All took off successfully that day, some never made it back alive, some had to bail out and were prisoner’s of war.

  1. Just curious, were you alive, probably as a child, when this was announced after may months of losses?

    It was a great shot in the arm, one well needed.
