The last of the Doolittle Tokyo Raiders from World War II turns 102 years old

Of the 80 Doolittle Tokyo Raiders, retired Lt. Col. Richard E. “Dick” Cole is the only one alive today. On Thursday, Cole turned 102.

Earlier this year in April, Cole took part in a 75th anniversary ceremony at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force in Dayton, Ohio. He commemorated the anniversary of the raid by continuing a tradition of raising a silver goblet with 1896 cognac and toasting to his fallen comrades.
