Could give us bit of conversation, between, you and General Doolittle? What was memorable?
What was great was that myself and one other soldier had him all to ourselves for the entire hour.
What we asked him about I’m sure he’d been asked about a thousand times before - the Doolittle Raid.
He just smiled and told the story liked he’d never been asked. I don’t really remember if he gave us any information nuggets that hadn’t already been published but just hearing it first hand had me awestruck. Frankly I was in awe just from being in the same room with him.
After talking to him he gave us a tour of his house. He lived in a very modest home in Carmel and was most proud of that photo of getting his fourth star.
The sad part of the whole thing was that I recorded our chat on a cassette. Of course now I have no idea where it is.
