    Gen./Dr. James Doolittle. An American original that is mostly forgotten. More important than Lindbergh, but not nearly as well known.

    I just don't really care about avatars.




    Much the same sentiment as the board has about your input.

    Yes primarily, actually served in I and II but saw combat action only in II. Invented instrument flying, among other things, between wars.

    Mine is obviously a tribute to the Pats' field general from the good old days. Watching Babe started me loving the game. I think it's fairly obvious that QB is my favorite position.

    Yes, I remember watching something about that on the History channel.  I remember him mostly for the infamous Doolittle Raid.  I find everything concerning WWII to be so fascinating.

    Who the heck doesn't know about Doolittle's raiders? They should be tired to friendship medals and dropped from a plane

    That would be about 90% of the people under 40.

    Yes, he covered the rear cockpit of a biplane with canvas and took off, flew for a while and landed without seeing anything and using radio signals as a guide.

    Sure, people have heard of it. But they don't know much about it, what it took to pull it off, how it went down, etc. And few know anything about Doolittle, they probably think "oh yeah, didn't he talk to animals?"  It's like the Battle of the Bulge or Iwo Jima or a dozen other events, everybody knows the names but how many know what those guys endured?

    That's a real shame. I'm under 40 but consider myself a history buff. To me forgetting about Doolittle is like forgetting about Jone Paul Jones or John Thach or Patton or Ethan Allen or Baron Von Steuben

    Muz, Irish and Babe, each of you may enjoy reading a book that I'm just finishing that I got as a Christmas present from my daughter-in-law - The Admirals by historian Walter R. Borneman.  Book is about the 4 eventual 5-start Admirals who won the war at sea during WWII:  Halsey, Nimitz, King and Leahy.  

    Exceptionally well written, factually detailed and tremendously readable with more than a couple of eye-openers.  Interesting discussion of MacArthur and his relationship with Halsey.

    Certainly not forgotten here in Cali. Many cities around here have a Dolittle Drive, Street or Way. He had a special conection with San Leandro, Ca. as well as Being born in Alameda.

    Thanks for the insight, ATJ!  I just read a synopsis on the book and it looks very intriguing.  I'm sure my Grandfather, who fought in WWII while he was in the Navy, would have loved to read it.  I'll definitely check it out the next time I go to Barnes & Noble.
