Charlie Bath enlisted in the Army in 1941, the day after Pearl Harbor. For four years, he proudly served as a wire chief in the signal corps.

DAYTON, OH - A reunion of the Doolittle Tokyo Raiders who made a daring U.S. air strike on Japan after the attack on Pearl Harbor will be held next April in Dayton. Officials at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force say as many as five members of the group of 80 flyers are expected to attend.
