Desert Lightning News Digital Edition - May 2020

Hello, fans and friends, and thanks for checking out the May 2020 edition of Davis-Monthan AFB Desert Lightning News! We have some extra content included in our digital edition here that you won’t find in the papers available on the newsstands – we hope you’ll click through and enjoy the extra news and features. This month, we take a look back at the storied Doolittle Raid of WWII, which just marked its 78th anniversary. During these challenging times, we hope you’ll be inspired by remembering the heroics of these brave warriors, who succeeded on a mission that some thought was doomed to fail – thus changing the course of the War in the Pacific and creating a path to victory.
