Tom Griffin, Doolittle Raider, Dies
B-25 navigator Maj Thomas Griffin died in a VA nursing home last week. While most such deaths would be noted by surviving family members, Griffin’s was noted by how many Doolittle Raiders he leaves behind: only 4.
As noted previously (and clarified by Doolittle Raider Association manager Tom Casey), the final public Doolittle reunion will be this year. The remaining Raiders will gather at another location privately and open the bottle of cognac reserved for the final survivors.
