Bombers make history: ‘Secret Squirrel’ members recount mission, presented air medals

U.S. Air Force Maj. Gen James Dawkins, Jr., 8th Air Force and Joint-Global Strike Operations Center commander, presents retired Lt. Gen. E.G. "Buck" Shuler, a former 8th Air Force commander, an Eighth Air Force 75th anniversary coin and patch during the 28th Anniversary Reunion of Operation Secret Surprise at the National Mighty Eighth Museum in Savannah, Ga., Jan. 19, 2019. During World War II, under the leadership of such generals as Ira Eaker and Jimmy Doolittle, the 8th Air Force formed the greatest air armada in history. For this reason, 8th Air Force is commonly known as "The Mighty Eighth." (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Luke Hill)
