Tuesday marks the 70th anniversary of the Doolittle Raid during World War II. Share your memories of World War II with our readers.

On Saturday, April 18, 1942 16 B-25 bombers manned by a total of 80 men launched from the aircraft carrier USS Hornet. The raid was planned and led by Lieutenant Colonel James Doolittle. The Doolittle Raid's goals were to target the Japanese Home Islands with the goal of demonstrating Japan was vulnerable, retaliate for the attack on Pearl Harbor and boost American morale.

The raid did little damage but achieved its mission goals. Three crewmen died in the attack. Eight more were captured. Of those captured, three were executed and 1 died in captivity. Colonel Doolittle received the Medal of Honor and all 80 of the men who flew the mission were awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. Today, at age 101, retired Lt. Col. Dick Cole is the sole survivor of the original 80-member group.
