We here at Airmail Greetings are terribly crushed to report the lost the last "Doolittle Raider". Legendary aviator, and dear personal friend, Col. William Marsh "Bill" Bower, the last surviving pilot of "Doolittle's Raiders" past yesterday, 1/10/11 at the age of 93 in his home in Boulder, CO.
This I say of my friend, Airmail's Jones shares -- "Bill lived up to every inch of the real American hero he truly was. Fine men like Bill define the very measuring stick we should hold ourselves to aspire to become. I will forever be grateful for all the time and stories he shared with me personally over the years. And, he never once told me to get a haircut... I am so honored to have called him my dear friend. Thank you sir. We will never forget you Bill!" Blue Skies...
