First Fact of the Day: December 15, 1944, legendary bandleader Glenn Miller disappears over the English Channel. General James Doolittle of the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF), hero of the daring "Doolittle Raid" on mainland Japan and later the unified commander of Allied air forces in Europe in World War Ii, offered the following high praise to one of his staff officers in 1944: "Next to a letter from home, Captain Miller, your organization is the greatest morale builder in the European Theater of Operations." The Captain Miller in question was the trombonist and bandleader Glenn Miller, the biggest star on the American pop-music scene in the years immediately preceding World War Ii and a man who set aside his brilliant career right at its peak in 1942 to serve his country as leader of the USAAF dance band. It was in that capacity that Captain Glenn Miller boarded a single-engine aircraft at an airfield outside of London on December 15, 1944—an aircraft that would go missing over the English Chan ...

Doolittle Tokyo Raiders: The Exchange Club of Long Beach, at their April 18th breakfast meeting, honored the Doolittle Tokyo Raiders on the 72nd Anniversary of the their Raid on Tokyo. It was on April 18, 1942, that Jimmy Doolittle led a flight of 16 B-25s on an air raid of Tokyo and surrounding cities. We did this by reviewing the story of David Jones, pilot of plane It is available on the Special Edition version of "The Great Escape." After the Doolittle Raid, David Jones flew missions out of North Africa. After being shot down, he was taken prisoner by the Germans and held at Luft Stalag III, the POW camp that was made famous as the site of the great escape of 76 allied POW's. Though he had assisted with various aspects of the escape operation, he and the other American's had been separated from the British POWs before the escape, and as a result, he was not included in the escape, which quite possibly saved his life. 50 of the 76 escapees were executed by the Germans. The Exchange Club of Long Beach s ...

From U.S. Naval War College Public Affairs NEWPORT, R.I. (NNS) -- The U.S. Naval War College (NWC) unveiled the public online digitization project of Fleet Adm. Chester Nimitz's 4,000 page operational diary, known as The Nimitz Graybook, during an evening lecture, Feb. 24 at NWC in Newport, R.I. Covering activities and correspondence of the Pacific Command from Dec. 7, 1941 to Aug. 31, 1945, the Graybook is a historical record of operations and planning in the Pacific during World War Ii and serves as a window into Nimitz's decision making process during the war. "We can trace the planning process, a lot of which was pioneered here at the Naval War College, for large-scale operations and watch the war unfold almost as if we were in the room," said Craig L. Symonds, U.S. Naval Academy professor emeritus of history, during the evening lecture. According to Symonds, Nimitz proclaimed that 'the war-gaming experience and education he received here at NWC were central to his success in the Pacific war.' "Cheste ...

During World War Ii, My father, Clarence Moore "Bob" Logsdon served as the NCO supervisor of the signalmen on the signal bridge of the Aircraft Carrier USS Hornet CV-8. One of his subordinates and friends was Allen Q. Nations of Bisbee AZ. My dad and Mr. Nations are depicted in this very famous photograph as they watch Jimmy Doolitle's B-25 leave the deck of Hornet on 18 April 1942, the Doolittle Raid. Mr. Nations perished at the Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands 26 October 1942, when the *** "Val" dive bomber crashed into the signal bridge showering him and others with burning AVGAS. Dad and the other survivors on the bridge, threw the burning men to the deck and ripped the burning gear from their bodies. Many did not survive. In the photo, my dad is the shorter man in the foreground leaning on the rail. Mr. Nations is depicted behind him. As I said, this is one of the most published photo's from WWII. I doubt that Mr. Nations family knew that he was immortalized. For years my dad went to the USS ...

What fictional character in WWII do you think suffers the most from "Forest Gump Syndrome" Forest Gump Syndrome - for those of you who don't know, is when a main character, over and over, finds themselves in some significant historical event to the point where it becomes ridiculous. I vote Ben Affleck's character in "Pearl Harbor". Flies with the RAF eagle squadron, then is shot down, comes back alive, in time to fight at Pearl Harbor then launches on the Doolittle Raid on Tokyo, fights thru China and later is awarded medals and meets President Roosevelt.

Your Glass To Final Four General / Inspiration It’s the cup of brandy no one wants to drink. The surviving Doolittle Raiders gathered publicly for the last time this April 17-21 at Fort Walton Beach, Florida. They once were among the most universally admired and revered men in the United States. There were 80 of the Raiders in April 1942, when they carried out one of the most courageous and heart-stirring military operations in this nation’s history. The mere mention of their unit’s name, in those years, would bring tears to the eyes of grateful Americans. Now only four survive. After Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor, with the United States reeling and wounded, something dramatic was needed to turn the war effort around. Even though there were no friendly airfields close enough to Japan for the United States to launch a retaliation, a daring plan was devised. Sixteen B-25s were modified so that they could take off from the deck of an aircraft carrier. This had never been tried before — ...

Copied this from a friend on another page - it's well worth the read: Today at 4:32 PM Strong language but much truth. We used to go to the Officers Club or NCO Club Stag Bar on Friday afternoons to drink, smoke and swap lies with our comrades. Think about this when you read the rest of the letter below. What happened to our Air Force/Marines/Army/Navy/CG... (or Military)? Drinking then became frowned on. Smoking caused cancer and could "harm you." Stag bars became seen as 'sexist'. Gradually, our men quit patronizing their clubs because what happened in the club became fodder for a performance report. It was the same thing at the Airman's Club and the NCO and/or Top 3 clubs. Now we don't have separate clubs for the ranks. Instead we have something called All Ranks Clubs or community clubs. They're open to men and women of all ranks.from airman basic to general officer. Still, no one is there. Gee, I wonder why. The latest brilliant thought out of Washington is that the operators ("pilots?") flying remote ...

A final reunion for vets of WWII Doolittle raid
These men truly are part of the greatest generation. Not only did the Doolittle Raid show the Japanese that their homeland was vulnerable and help raise America’s spirits, but it also forced the Japanese Admiralty to approve the operation against Midway Island. A battle that they would lose and from that point on be on the defensive in the Pacific. Gods’ rest to those who have passed and God Bless to those who remain.
At the air museum in Ohio the final gathering of the Doolittle Raiders took place, with the survivors breaking open the bottle of cognac to make a final toast to heir departed comrades. One of the more impressive actions of the war, the raid was done in almost complete secrecy (not a bad feat in itself), and just four months after Pearl Harbor. The response stands as a tremendous example of planning, training, daring and courage that was effective (no matter what historians say - ask the people who lived then what they thought!) in reorganizing the enemies plans and boosting the morale at home. A rare bottle shared by deserving men.

So I sat here, watched the last Doolittle Raiders toast via live feed, and yes, I lifted my wee dram of 16 year old Scotch (pales in comparison to the 117 year old cognac these heroes sipped) in honor of 80 men who dared challenge our enemy at the very brink of a long, insidious, two fronted campaign that I am only now beginning to comprehend how critical to my very survival. Yes, I got an autographed recollection of that event in my private library, and I spent the past 4 nights re-reading the tales of some gutsy folks who were terrified they might get courtmartialed, some gutsy folks who watched some of their own executed by the hands of the enemy ... all I can say, is thank the good Lord for gutsy ballsy folks like the Doolittle Raiders,... yeah thank the Lord for gutsy folks!

Today is the (probably) last time that the Doolittle Raiders (3 of 4) will get together. 6 months after Pearl Harbor. Col Doolittle and his small air force launched off the deck of the USS Hornet. To begin their famous raid on Japan. While the raid did no real damage, it let the Japanese know that we can get to them. And was a boost to the morale of the American people. Take a moment today and lift a glass or can in salute to what they did for us.

When it comes to those holding the rank of Admiral, there are many famous examples, both in real life and in fiction. We have Admiral David Glasgow Farragut, who, during the Battle of Mobile Bay during the U.S. Civil War, is quoted as having said *** the torpedoes, full speed ahead." Then there are Fleet Admiral Chester A. Nimitz, Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet during much of World War Ii, Fleet Admiral William "Bull" Halsey, who led the Doolittle Raid in 1942 and, later, the U.S. Navy's Island Hopping campaign during the later half of WWII, and who can forget Pearl Harbor mastermind Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto of the Imperial Japanese Navy. In fiction, who can forget Star Wars admiral, Admiral Ackbar (It's a trap!") or Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Its planes stopped the Japanese super-battleship Yamato and played a major part in sinking that vessel. It launched the first strikes in the liberation of the Philippines, and, in February 1945, made the first strikes on Japan since the Doolittle Raid in 1942. The ship was eventually restored and designated a National Historic Landmark, and in 1998 the USS Hornet opened to the public as therifle scope USS Hornet USS Hornet Museum in Alameda, Calif. For 16 continuous months during WWII, the USS Hornet was in action in the forward areas of the Pacific combat zone, sometimes within 40 miles of the Japanese home islands. Following World War Ii, the Hornet served in the Korean War, Vietnam War, and then played a part in the Apollo space program, recovering the astronauts from the first moon landing mission, Apollo 11, in 1969. Destroying 1,410 enemy aircraft and more than a million tons of enemy shipping, the Es-class aircraft carrier, known ominously as the Grey Ghost, played a pivotal role in virtually a ...
The best scene in “Midway” is the opening, lifted and sepia-printed from “Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo,” of the Doolittle Raid, a reminder of the difference between a good picture and a great one. You then have to get past an improbable romantic subplot that brings in the internment of the Japanese-Americans, anachronistic Navy footage of planes not even flight tested on June 4, 1942 (Grumman Hellcats), other footage borrowed from “Tora Tora Tora,” “Battle of Britain,” and a Japanese picture called “I Bombed Pearl Harbor” in the United States (pretty good as I recall from seeing it on television in college), and some dialog that lands with a thud. So why is it still good? Mixed in with the clunkers are good lines. When Hal Holbrooke tells Charlton Heston they can read one word in ten of the Japanese radio traffic, Heston says: “Joe [Rochefort], you’re guessing.” A slightly wounded Holbrooke replies: “We like to call it analysis.” But more importantly, an enthusiastic cast lays o ...

A long read, but worth every minute. I love the part of Mac talking about the adrenaline rush just before leaving the carrier! You think? Aircraft in the Doolittle Raid: -My name is Edgar McElroy. My friends call me "Mac". I was born and raised in Ennis , Texas, the youngest of five children, son of Harry and Jennie McElroy. Folks say that I was the quiet one. We lived at 609 North Dallas Street and attended the Presbyterian Church. My dad had an auto mechanic's shop downtown close to the main fire station. My family was a hard working bunch, and I was expected to work at dad's garage after school and on Saturdays, so I grew up in an atmosphere of machinery, oil and grease. Occasionally I would hear a lone plane fly over, and would run out in the street and strain my eyes against the sun to watch it. Someday, that would be me up there! I really like cars, and I was always busy on some project, and it wasn't long before I decided to build my very own Model-T out of spare parts. I got an en ...

Last veterans of the Doolittle Raid on Tokyo gather for reunion:
Major Thomas Griffin, a navigator on the Doolittle Raid was called home Tuesday. He passed in a VA home in northern Kentucky at age 96. At the next reunion of the surviving Doolittle Raiders in Fort Walton Beach, where they trained for the mission, they will turn Maj. Griffin’s goblet upside down, and there will be only four left upright. Maj. Griffin parachuted to safety over China and eluded capture, eventually making it back stateside. He later flew bombing missions over North Africa until he was shot down in 1943, spending the remainder of the war in a German POW camp. Years ago the President of Hennessy Company presented a bottle of 1896 vintage “Very Special Hennessy” cognac to General Jimmy Doolittle, in honor of his birth year and it was decided that the last two survivors would toast the fallen with it. Due to their advanced age it was decided that they would make the toast this year, before there were none left. The private ceremony will be attended only by the surviving Raiders, the Raide ...
Tayday's plane of the day go's to the North American B-25 Mitchell: One of the best light bombers of World War Ii. It was named after General Billy Mitchell who, as far back as 1920, had the foresight to urge the U.S. to build a stronger and better-prepared air force. On the day that Pearl Harbor was attacked, only 40 B-25s were in service, but before the end of the War more than 11,000 were operating on all fronts in almost all Allied air forces, achieving extraordinary feats. One of these was the bombing of Tokyo on April 18, 1942, by16 B-25 Mitchells which took off from the carrier Hornet commanded by the ex-sports pilot Jimmy Doolittle. After completing the mission the aircraft landed in China. The Raid in a Nut Shell: THE LEGENDARY Doolittle Raid was named after its commander and famous race pilot Jimmy Doolittle, but was conceived by Navy Capts. Francis Low and Donald Duncan. Low and Duncan figured that if aircrews could take off in a fully loaded medium bomber from a 700-foot runway, they could lau ...
Thomas Griffin, navigator on the No. 9 B-25 bomber Whirling Dervish in the Doolittle Raid on Japan on April 18, 1942, passed away Tuesday evening in Cincinnati, Ohio. He was 96.
The eighth USS Hornet, the one currently docked in Alameda, California was commissioned in 1943 at the height of the war in the Pacific. She quickly became one of the most highly decorated ships in the Navy. She destroyed 1,410 Japanese aircraft and destroyed or damaged 1,269,710 tons of enemy shipping. Ten Hornet pilots attained "Ace in a Day" status. She supported nearly every Pacific amphibious landing after March 1944 and struck the critical first hits in sinking the super battleship Yamato. Her pilots are also credited with the first strikes against Tokyo since the 1942 Doolittle Raid. During the cold war the Hornet had the honor of recovering astronauts from both the Apollo 11 and 12 missions. Her impressive record did not come without cost. An aircraft carrier, in times of war or peace, is a dangerous place. Sailors have walked into aircraft's spinning props, been sucked into their air intakes, and blown off deck by their exhaust. Dropped ordnance has exploded, burning and maiming sailors. Snapping ...

I guess now days "strongly condemning the attacks" is equal to Jimmy Doolittle's raid ,bombing Tokyo just to let the *** s er Japan know that America won't take you killing our young service men...if you like history like me, you know that this is basically how ww2 started,when the most common response before the *** bombed Pearl Harbor was"we need to stay out of it,it has nothing to do with us "100,000,000 dead people later ww2 was over and the most common opinion was"we should of never let it get to that point,never again can we let evil go unchecked".but maybe I'm not *** so I don't get the presidents thinking and responses

On April 18, 1942, 80 men took part in the legendary Doolittle Raid. Now, 5 remain. Meet them at our conference in DC:
Thank you my my wonderful client Jessy Johnston!! So very well said!!! The killing of Ambassador Christopher Stevens is bringing out a lot of passion today. I've seen over a dozen posts claiming that Obama apologized to Libya, it's not true. I've seen many posts calling for an immediate retaliation for the attack. I've seen numerous posts saying that we need to strike back, and "nuke them". If you've read this far and plan on reading the rest, I suggest you sit down and grab some hot cocoa, this is going to take a minute. Having been to a majority Muslim country and spending 3 years working with the people there daily, fighting them regularly, and talking with them frequently, I have learned that not all people in a specific country are bad. Not all of them follow extremist leaders. Not all of them want Americans dead. Saying that Libya did this is like saying that America executed the Oklahoma city bombing. It's like saying that the Unibomber worked for our government. As for the "bad guys" I assure you ...

Learning about the Doolittle raid on Tokyo. It's crazy the thought of knowing you have to crashland after a bombing mission and be captive
Mitsuo Fuchida led the attack on Pearl Harbour. Later had an encounter with God and became a Christian without talking to any other Christians. He became bets friends with Jacob DeShazer who was a bombardier on the Doolittle Raid of 1942. Amazing story about the power of God.

The Art Chronology series continues with a minute-by-minute retelling of the Doolittle Raid through the use of artwork. I have taken the liberty of standardizing some of the text (which will be accredited) such as ranks, unit and aircraft designations. Grammatical errors have been corrected. Six artworks from three artists have been assembled to date. So rev up the engines on your Mitchell and watch for the signal to launch. A multitude of images of Mitchells are headed your way.

I missed yesterday, so here goes: On this day, 70 years ago, the conclusion of the first ever naval battle in which neither side's ships visually saw the other concluded. The United States Navy had lost the pride of her fleet, the USS Lexington. The USS Yorktown was heavily damaged. The U.S.N. was now down to 2 functioning carriers, the USS Hornet and the USS Enterprise (they missed the battle due to the Doolittle Raid 2 weeks ago). They had also lost a fleet oiler and a destroyer. In exchange, we had sunk a small carrier (HIJMS Shoho), heavily damaged a fleet carrier, and most importantly, cancelled a planned invasion of Port Moresby. The Battle of the Coral Sea would forever be remembered as a tactical defeat, but a strategic victory. The U.S.N. went into battle an untested force, with atrocious equipment and a complete deathtrap of a warplane, the TBD Devastator. As for the Japanese, they first tasted defeat at sea, and the loss of the Shokaku would have profound influence next month...STAY TUNED!
