70 Years Ago Today we struck back at Japan with Doolittle's Raiders

Doolittle's Raiders launched a daring no return bombing raid on Japan 70 years ago today.
There are five surviving raiders alive today. The attack did limited damage but showed Japan we were willing to fight back and could strike the Japanese homeland. It sent a clear message just four months after the attack on Pearl Harbor, while the US was still licking our wounds and building our war machine.


Doolittle's raid is the second battle shown in James Cameron's "Pearl Harbor."
