Doolittle's Raiders Last Gathering -- November 11, 2013

Saturday three of the four surviving Doolittle Raiders held what was the last of their yearly gatherings to toast each other and their fallen comrades.  Jimmy Doolittle was an aviation pioneer who led the first raid against the Japanese mainland during the Second World War.  He and his raiders flew B-25s off the deck of the carrier Hornet.  The image is from the movie based on the raid, Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo
