The story of one of the most amazing events of WWII. It’s the story of the famous Doolittle’s Raiders, who took off from the decks of aircraft carriers in their B25 bombers to perform a surprise bombing attack on Tokyo, Japan. The amazing part is that they did not have enough fuel to get their planes back to safety, but they went anyway. Air Force sergeant Jacob DeShazer was there.
He will tell his story of a crash landing, being captured and tortured by the Japanese in their prison camps. But the miracle of the story? You’ll have to hear for yourself how God took a horrific event and turned it into an opportunity for the Gospel to be spread.
About Jerry Stewart
I am a story teller. Since 1998, I have been telling the true stories of our nation and those Americans gone before us. To say the least, these stories have been well received by Americans, both young and old. So, here’s where the stories have taken me. In 1998, I was broadcasting my stories on just one radio station in Washington State. Today, from Texas 15 years later, these programs are now broadcast through a syndicated radio network to over 400 radio stations all across America, with literally millions of listeners.

“I regret i have but one life to lose for my country.”

“Many men fail because they quit too soon. They lose faith when the signs are against them. They do not have the courage to hold on, to keep fighting in spite of that which seems insurmountable. If more of us would strike out and attempt the impossible, we very soon would find the truth of that old saying – nothing is impossible”.
Doctor C.E. Welch, Founder of Welch's Grape Juice
“You cannot lift your children to a higher level than that on which you live yourself.”
“Never let yourself be persuaded that any one great man, any one leader, is necessary to the salvation of America; when America consists of one leader and 250 million followers, it will no longer be America.”
President Dwight Eisenhower
“The philosophy of our school room in one generation will be the philosophy of the government in the next.”
“The spirit of this city and this nation will not be defeated because our deeply rooted faith will sustain us”.

“Duty, honor, country. These three hallowed words reverently dictate what a soldier ought to be, what you can be, what you will be. They are the soldier’s rallying post to build courage when courage seems to fail, to regain faith when there seems to be little cause for faith, to create hope when all hope is gone. Duty…honor…country.”
