Biography | show moreshow less
Corporal Jacob De Shazer (1912-2008), was one of 80 men who took off in 16 B-25 Mitchell bombers from the U.S.S. Hornet for a daring raid over Japan on April 18, 1942. De Shazer was the bombardier on plane #16, the last of the bombers to leave the aircraft carrier. Led by James "Jimmy" Doolittle, the raid, which marked the first time fully loaded bombers took off from an aircraft carrier, was in retaliation for Japan's surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. "Doolittle's Raiders" hit targets in Tokyo, Yokohama and other cities and scored a huge victory for U.S. morale at a time when Japan's position in the Pacific seemed impregnable. As of January 17, 2004, there were only 17 remaining Raiders, including DeShazer.
