Inscription reads: "On this, the 60th Anniversary Year of the historical Doolittle Raid on Japan, The surviving Airmen on behalf of the original eighty airmen who participated on this mission, send special remembrances to the people of China. The undying gratitude of the American airmen is extended to the Chinese people who in April, 1942, at great risk to their lives and the lives of their families, gave protection, food, shelter, and medical attention that ultimately led to freedom for the Doolittle airmen who sought their help. We are forever grateful and we shall never forget. The Doolittle Raiders." Image displayed (72 dpi JPEG), Master image (600 dpi TIFF).
