I enjoyed reading the editorial about the Doolittle Raid in 1942 over Japan. However you omitted one very important part of the story. You failed to mention one of our local heroes, Lt. William G. Farrow, who was one of the pilots who took place in the raid.
His plane ran out of fuel and he was captured by the Japanese. He underwent months of torture and disease only to be eventually executed by his captors. Our family has been living here on a permanent basis now for almost 16 months, and I have been doing Internet research finding out the story behind the names of some of the roads and locations. It did not take long to find out that Farrow Parkway was named after this brave pilot.
