    Hi

    is anybody of you in touch with some of the Tokio members? I´d love to have a signed picture of him what I´d really appreciate... I know this might be difficult but who doesn´t ask doesn´t have anything.

    Many thanks friends!

    I am a distant cousin to one of the surviving members, but have never met him. You might check for the Doolittle Reunion on Google. I don't think they do them anymore, but there is probably someone out there that can help you with that.

    seesul,

    If you're looking for a signature(s) of the Doolittle Raiders you may want to consider aviation art. I own two limited edition prints that have been signed by a total of 17 of the raiders.

    And there are many other prints by various artists that contain original signatures.

    Hope this helps.

    Well that's depressing. I never received word that William Birch had gone west. He was my distant cousin. I think TO's suggestion might be your best bet as I don't know that there will be any more Doolittle Raider reunions, sadly.

    TO,

    special edition prints are something impersonal to me. I alwyas prefer a personal piture with the dedication on it. It´s not easy to get it but I´m always proud of it. If I had a time, I´d send a letter to some of these brave men. But with a new born baby I´m thankful for every moment spent on pc...even now I´m typing with my daughter in my arms...but never say never....
