On 18 April 1942 Lt. Col. Cole (then 2nd Lieutenant) flew from the deck of the Aircraft Carrier USS Hornet on what would be one of the most daring raids on the empire of Japan during WWII. He was the co-pilot of a B-25B Mitchell bomber (piloted by Lt. Col. James H. "Jimmy" Doolittle). His plane was one of sixteen like-bombers with a mission to bomb Tokyo and other key cities in Japan that day. This attack, America's first retaliatory strike, would be so decisive that it would ultimately lead to the turning point of the war with the Japanese counter attack and the defeat at Midway in June of that same year.
