Yes indeed. That's a high honor to have met those gentlemen, Barney. We've lost most of the WWII vets, and the few that are left won't be with us much longer. When you said "one last reunion," you weren't just using a figure of speech. Today's the 71st anniversary of the Doolittle Raid. I salute you, Raiders

Landed the B-17 back in Pensacola just before dark.
I think he paid about that much for the trip and told me it was worth every penney.
Wow. Great pics, this one's my favorite. Talk about a dream come true for a history buff...
