1942 — Africa
Lt. Harvey Hinman, was a stand-by Pilot ON the Hornet if some one needed to be replaced, he was as ready as the others who actually Flew ! He was as ready to give his life as all of the valuable "Other" that were there for this Historic and amazing event ! OH, It was going to be "Historic" all right ! Not only for actually watching those B-25's rise successfully off the Hornet's pitching and heaving deck, but they had been seen, it was 600 miles too soon ! They thought they were flying to their death, not imaginging that they were about the change the course of the entire WAR !
The "Doolittle Raid" is our HISTORY, so now we go forward, Doolittle was promoted, given the 12th Air Force, and gathered his loyal men behind him to be placed in positions of great importance, positions that would guide the Air War over in Africa/Italy and to the very surrender of the Germans !
Col Harvy Hinman was an original member, assigned into the 310th Headquarters.
