The Raider Emblem…A Badge Of Valor 

The surviving members of the Doolittle Raid are united under a unique insignia commemorating their historic mission. 

The elements which make up the Raider Crest represent the crews who took part in the Tokyo Raid.  The seven Maltese Crosses come from the standard of the 17th Bomber Group, from which three of the squadrons were selected – the 34th Squadron, represented by the Thunderbird; the 95th Squadron, represented by the Kicking Mule; and the 37th Squadron, represented by the Tiger’s Head.  The winged Helmet represents the 89th Reconnaissance Squadron. 

Above, a Mitchell B-25 Bomber climbs skyward; beneath, a memorable motto symbolizes the courage and spirit of the Doolittle team: “Ever into peril”.
