Count Ferdinand von Galen presents a limited edition painting, West Bound: A Date with the General, to Lt. Gen. Norman Seip, commander 12th Air Force and Air Forces Southern, and to Maj. Gen. (retired) David Jones, one of the original Doolittle Raiders. The painting, created by world-renowned aviation artist William S. Phillips, captures the courageous actions of the famed “Doolittle Raiders” during the 1942 raid of Japan. The painting, according to Count von Galen, was donated to the James H. Doolittle Combined Air and Space Operations Center because the command embodies the character of the original Raiders in their work around the world.
