Dennis Okerstrom talked about his upcoming book, Project 9: The Birth of the Air Commandos in World War II, about a secret team that was a forerunner to modern special forces units. He was joined by Dick Cole, who also talked about his experiences such as flying as Jimmy Doolittle’s co-pilot in the 1942 raid on Tokyo, flying supplies over the Himalayas into China, and becoming one of the Air Commandos.

This program at the Kansas City Public Library’s Plaza Branch was co-sponsored by Park University. close
