Lt. Col. Richard E. Cole, one of two surviving members of the Doolittle Raiders, just turned 100 years old in September. During a recent visit to the Pentagon, he received a commemorative shadowbox that contained several patches to show the history of the bomb squadrons, two clips from bombs and a flag that was flown on Sep. 7, 2015 over Southwest Asia in honor of Cole's 100th birthday. Watch Lt. Cole on the Air Force video.
