Surviving Doolittle's Raiders To Meet In Ohio

Sep 6, 2013

The four remaining members of the Doolittle's Raiders from World War II will make their final toast together in a ceremony set for November 9th at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force near Dayton.

All of the survivors of the 1942 bombing raid on Japan are in their 90s. By tradition, the Raiders reunite each year and toast "those who have gone" from the original 80. For years, the plan was for the last two survivors to make the final toast. But after Major Thomas Griffin of Cincinnati died in February, it was decided to have a final ceremony this year because of the survivors' ages.
