President Trump spoke on the phone Sunday with retired Lt. Col. Dick Cole, the last surviving member of the Doolittle Raiders, the White House said Monday.
During the phone call, Trump offered “best wishes and support to this 101-year-old veteran who was recently injured.”
Cole served as a co-pilot of a B-25 bomber during the 1942 raid on Tokyo led by Lt. Col. James “Jimmy” Doolittle. The mission took place at the very beginning of World War II.
There were 16 bombers that left on that flight. The crews didn’t know whether they would have enough fuel to return and bailed over China. Three crewmen died in the raid and three were captured and executed.
Say thank you to a veteran below.
