71st and Final Reunion of Jimmy Doolittle's Raiders

On April 18, 1942, that remarkable attack did take place under the leadership of Lt. Col. James H. "Jimmy" Doolittle with 80 B 25 combat crew volunteers from the 17th Bomb Group and a less than 50/50 chance of coming back alive. Later the odds would get worse but not a single man opted out. It would be a one way flight at best.
