Speaker says this concludes our ceremony, and this concludes the mission.

The final toast has been observed.

Reception at the B-25 in the museum to follow, Raiders will be there as well.

Thank you, Gentlemen, and all who served with you on the raid on Tokyo. You defied the odds, performed your charge with bravery, skill, and fortitude, and electrified an entire country, lifting its morale in the post-Pearl Harbor era when the days were so dark.

May God bless you and keep you, and may we never forget what you did for us.

Just damn. I missed it by minutes.

My blessings upon the last of the Raiders. We shall not see their like again in our lifetime.

To these last few heroes, I say only: “I’m sorry we let the flag falter these last five years.”
