Default Richard Cole, the last Doolittle Raider has died

May God rest this hero's soul. The last of the Doolittle Raiders flying co-pilot in the lead aircraft of the raid over Tokyo, Lt. Colonel Richard Cole has died.

It's strange to think of how few WWII veterans are left now. I wonder how many 1st hand stories have been lost without ever having been told. I sure miss talking with my grandfather who served in the Pacific Theater. We lose a certain perspective when we lose a generation like that. It makes me think of Civil War Veterans.
