The final toast of three out of the remaining four April 1942 Doolittle Raiders will be held at the Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio. Four survive out of the original 80 Army Air Force veterans who attacked Japan 71 or so years ago. As a boy in the 1950s and 1960s, I assembled and glued together that nice olive-drab plastic REVELL B-25 model and placed the decals upon it. I read Ted Lawson's "30 Seconds Over Tokyo" three times and have viewed the Van Johnson movie many more throughout the years. In April 1942, Corporal Joel B. Harrison was 24 years old and Elizabeth Allen was 23 years old. I have seen some B-25 flybys on TV and around the old Wright Field during these anniversaries.
