Honor these American heroes

Here's an opportunity for a philanthropist to do something worthwhile, or for a company to earn public relations benefits:

After the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, Americans were both determined to prevail in World War II and, at the same time, concerned. A much-needed morale boost was provided when, on April 18, 1942, 80 U.S. fliers led by Lt. Col. "Jimmy" Doolittle bombed the Japanese homeland.

Just five of the Doolittle raiders remain alive. On April 17-20, they will hold a reunion in Dayton, Ohio.

Events honoring the men are planned at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force. Officials there are hoping to find funding to fly in a few old B-25 bombers, like the raiders used, for the event.

If you can help, please do so. It's little enough to do for the last five Doolittle raiders.
