The live-stream of both the Doolittle Raiders Final Goblet Ceremony AND the Doolittle Farewell Flyover events can be view below.
On April 18, 2022, at 1pm Central, at the Mattie Kelly Arts Center at Northwest Florida State College, the Greater Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce will host the “Final Goblet” a ceremony that will mark the passing of Doolittle Raider, Col. Richard E. “Dick” Cole. Since April 1947, a ceremonial “roll call” has honored the eighty Doolittle Raiders. Cole and all of the members of Doolittle Raiders were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal in May 2014 “for outstanding heroism, valor, skill, and service to the United States in conducting their bombings of Tokyo.” Many historians’ credit the raid as the critical factor of the Japanese defeat at the Battle of Midway, often cited as the turning point in the Pacific war. Participating in this event will include invited attendees, Raider family members, government officials, and military dignitaries. Eighty active-duty airmen from Eglin Air Force Base and Hurlburt Field will sit among family members to represent each Doolittle Raider during the ceremony.
General Admission tickets are available for $10.00 and can be purchased at Mattie Kelly Arts Center Box Office 850-729-6000 or by visiting the website at www.mattiekellyartscenter.org.
At 5pm that same day, a “Flyover” with 30 vintage and current Air Force planes will take place at The Boardwalk on Okaloosa Island in Fort Walton Beach, FL, in honor of the Doolittle Raiders.
In 2013, the Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce host the 71st Doolittle Raiders Reunion, which was the final reunion due to their only being 4 remaining Raiders. Below is both a Highlights video of that multi-day event and a Farewell documentary. The event highlights video was produced by RJ Murdock and the documentary was produced by Kevin Almodovar. Also included at the end is a short Doolittle Reunions video provided by West Fields.
