Jeff Thatcher, son of Doolittle Raider, Staff Sgt. David Thatcher, gives remarks at the National Museum of the United States Air Force April 18, 2017. The memorial service, including a wreath laying, honored the 75th anniversary of the Doolittle Tokyo Raid in which 80 volunteers used 16 B-25 bombers to strike the Japanese mainland from the USS Hornet aircraft carrier, turning the tide of World War II. The ceremony included two flyovers of B-25 bombers, one in the missing man formation, and a B-1B bomber flyover, one of which had been rechristened the "Ruptured Duck" in a ceremony the day before. Staff Sgt. Thatcher was a crew member on the original Ruptured Duck, during the Doolittle Raid.
