#OnThisDay in 1942, from the carrier USS Hornet, located 668 miles off Tokyo, Lt. Col. James Doolittle led 16 B-25s in the first raid on Japan. The range of the mission caused the raiders to crash land in China. The attack caused little damage; however, the mission raised U.S. morale and broke a trend of Japanese victories. Doolittle later received the Medal of Honor for leading the mission.

Also, #DidYouKnow... Ellsworth is home to three of the original Doolittle squadrons - 34th Bomb Squadron, 37th Bomb Squadron and 89th Attack Squadron.
