    Default DOOLITTLE RAIDER Tom C Griffin

    Griffin

    My wife's great uncle is near death at the Ft Thomas VA hospital across the river in Kentucky. Tom is 96 years old and settled in Cincinnati after the war. Tom is in a coma and is not expected to be with us much longer.I met Mr Tom Griffin around 1990 after marrying his great niece Amy Griffin.
