In memory of Doolittle’s Raid on Tokyo in 1942, 81 years ago

80 volunteers from the 17th Bombardment Group

USS Hornet (CV-8) Yorktown class aircraft carrier linked up with USS Enterprise, part of TF16. Retrofitted lightened bomber planes traveled about 800 miles, twice as far as planned.

16 Planes
16 Pullups

B-25 Bombers
25 Diamond Merkins, 25 Pike Merkins, 25 stepups for
Northern, Central, Southern Tokyo & Tokyo Bay, each at a new station


25 Dips for Yokohama & Yokusuka navy yard bombings


25 big boy situps, 25 werkins, 25 Bonnie Blairs for southern targets – Nagoya, Osaka, Kobe depot’s and facilities

14 Tons of bombs dropped overall

7 US casualties
4 killed by Japan after capture, 3 in crash
5 captured by Soviets

5 pullups for captured men who later were released
7 Kraken Burpees for those who gave their lives in the Raid

Head to Mary for the journey experienced by those rescued on the Chinese mainland, and journey back to America for those captured by Soviets

Toe touches 25 OYO
Big boi situps To Proud Mary, and every time ‘rolling’ is sung:
Heels to Heaven or Flutter kicks halfway through

This operation paved the way for Midway in June – Japan was rattled, focusing on defense, and distracted by Chinese. We had cracked their naval code, and Admiral Chester Nimitz ordered the interception of the main fleet, resulting in the battle that turned the tide in the Pacific Theater. Never forget the repercussions and impacts for good our small decisive victories can have on the overall tide of our lives and those around us.

Announcements: Men’s Hike this weekend, Travis Manion WOD next weekend, Convergence May 12-13, Murph on Memorial Day

Prayers: Fun Run’s new guys at work, Spackler, Fun Run, and the boys on Men’s Hike this weekend. Peace from anxiety for Downy.
