About The Last Reunion: A Salute to The Jimmy Doolittle Tokyo Raiders: In April of 2012, four of the surviving five Jimmy Doolittle Raiders made the decision to hold a 71st Reunion at Fort Walton Beach, Florida and Eglin Air Force Base. Just prior to that 71st Reunion the Raiders made the decision that it would be their last official reunion. While rumors circulated for a “final toast” and a Congressional Gold Medal those stories were yet to come.
The Last Reunion book covers the entire exciting history of the now famous Tokyo Raid as it built up to the 71st Reunion. It also includes the two key “post reunion” events, the “Final Toast” and the presentation of the Congressional Gold Medal. The book includes many Doolittle Raider stories not well known and over 338 photographs many being shown for the first time. The Last Reunion is a must read for Doolittle Raider, Aviation History and World War II History readers.
