71 years ago today, the Doolittle Raiders (Led by Lt. Col. Jimmy Doolittle) attacked cities in Japan, the first retaliatory strike since the Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor.
I like the quote from the movie, "This much is certain. Before the Doolittle raid, America knew nothing but defeat. After it, there was hope of victory. Japan realized, for the first time, they could lose and began to pull back. America realized, that she would win and surged forward. It was a war, that changed America and the world."



Something that we don’t hear much about. If you want to read more about it check out this article…
