March Lunch: Living History: The Doolittle Raid @ Tony Mandola's Gulf Coast Kitchen
Mar 6 @ 11:30 – 13:00

March Speaker: Don Houk, Lone Star Flight Museum

Living History Presentation: The Doolittle Raid:  Immediately after the Japanese surprise attack at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941, President Franklin Roosevelt ordered our military to attack Tokyo, the capital of the Japanese empire. At that time, we did not have an airplane that would go that far. Therefore, under a tight veil of secrecy, Lt. Col. James H. “Jimmy” Doolittle was selected to put together a plan to place medium Army bombers on an aircraft carrier for the purpose of completing the order issued by President Roosevelt. Many things went wrong!  By special permission by the Doolittle Raiders themselves, Lone Star Flight Museum presents the only first-person presentation of this momentous event.
