Today marks the 75th anniversary of the very first attack on Japan by the United States during World War II. This attack known as the Doolittle Raid was flown by 80 brave men in B-25 planes. Lined up on the USS Hornet their mission was to fly off of this aircraft carrier, bomb 5 cities and land in the safe part of China. All but one plane crashed landed. Despite the devastating crash landings 73 of the original 80 men lived to tell their story. Today our 5th grade schools plan this mission to see if they can successful make it to safety.
