The greatest generation

Write a comment I read an op ed in the Wall St. Journal this morning about the death, at age 95, of a survivor of Doolittle's raid on Tokyo. He'd been captured when his B25 crashed in Japanese-held China and tortured hideously. Most of his crew mates were executed by their captors. He later returned to Japan as a missionary. I sent the article to my teenage son remarking that we are losing a remarkable generation but that I believe, as the generation that is fighting in Iraq have their stories told, we'll find another greatest generation is among us. "The three wounded SF soldiers immediately returned to duty. " Remarkable! Where do we find such people? Thank you for telling this story and so many others, Michael. Please take care of yourself and tell these great American heroes that we are praying for them and the success of their mission. Godspeed. I ordered the book and look forward to its April arrival!
