Default Today in History

Today, the 18th of April is the 75th anniversary of the Doolittle Raid on Japan. 16 B-25 bombers launched from a carrier, 650 miles from Japan, navigated their way there, bombed their target and flew on to China. Out of 80 men, all but 7 returned to the U.S.

Amazing men all, and the first step in the long road to ending the war.

Two things happened in history, two years apart, over the last and next few days.

June 4-7, 1942. This is the 75th anniversary of The Battle of Midway, which would be the turning point in WWII in the Pacific.

June 6, 1944. The 73rd anniversary of the D-Day invasion in Normandy, and the start of the ground fight to end the war in Europe.

Take a few moments to reflect on those involved in those actions and the outcomes that came from them.
