Dick Cole, last of the Doolittle Raiders Dies-218, 86 Japan-Sidenote on Jamaica
The Doolittle Raids named after Jimmy Doolittle.
James Harold Doolittle=218
Notice he died 2 months 18 days before his bday too.
It's also interesting as the 218th day of the year is 8/6.
Dick Cole dies on 4/9...
The Doolittle Raids were an attack on Tokyo.
August 6th also the day of the Atomic bomb in Hiroshima.
Cole died 8 months 6 days before the anniversary of Doolittle dying as well.
James Doolittle died 163 days after the anniversary of the Doolittle Raids.
163 is the 38th prime.
Off topic but looking at August 6th I see that it's the day Jamaica gained independence from the United Kingdom.
