Apparently, Kenneth was aboard the Hornet when Doolittle launched the raids but he was not one of the crew members. There's a confusing blurb about this on the webpage of his local VFW post in Bussey, Iowa:
KENNETH CECIL BUNCH
Aviation Radioman, 1/c
Entered service March 8, 1938, training at San Diego, California. Overseas with Dolittle’s first Bomber Crew over Tokyo. Lost his life in battle of Midway, June 6, 1942. Decorations: Purple Heart, Air Medal for heroism in Midway battle. On May 29, 1943, a destroyer escort was named the U.S.S. Bunch at Bay City, Michigan in his honor. He was the father of three children.
This small paragraph led me to believe for awhile that Kenneth was one of the Raiders, but now I know this is wrong after more research. I cannot find any info about his connection to the Raids on Tokyo other that he was aboard the Hornet, but there is plenty of info about his role he played in Midway. He was a radioman-gunner during Midway and his Dauntless was shot down by antiaircraft fire after scoring a direct hit on the battleship Mogami. Kenneth and the pilot, Ens. Donald T Griswold, were the last two Americans killed during Midway. In 1943, the Navy named two escort destroyers the USS Bunch and the USS Griswold in their honor.
Does anyone have any tips where I might find more information about Kenny and Donald T Griswold?
BTW, thank you to the webmaster for this wonderful website and for keeping the history of these brave men alive. The remaining Raiders are national treasures.
