Doolittles Raid
In this Dec. 1, 2011 photo, Maj. Thomas Griffin, seated, poses next to a couch covered with memorabilia from World War II at his home in Cincinnati with Ray Hughes, left, a veteran of the Strategic Air Command, and fellow WW II veteran Bill Barr. Griffin was a navigator on one of the planes used in Doolittle's raid on Japan in 1942. Coming just four months after the Imperial Japanese Navy savaged the U.S. Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor, the Doolittle raid on Japan's home did little damage, but lifted the spirits of Americans and electrified a world at war.
