Another loss: one of Doolittle's Raiders

From Michelle Malkin:

Jacob DeShazer of Salem took part in World War II’s legendary Doolittle Raid, endured more than three years as a Japanese prisoner of war and later teamed up with his wife, Florence, to serve as a Methodist missionary in Japan for nearly 30 years.

DeShazer, 95, died Saturday night at the Lancaster Village assisted-living facility, said Ruth Kutrakun, the youngest of the couple’s five children.
