Lieutenant William Farrow, a Darlington, South Carolina, native, was a member of the famed Doolittle Tokyo Raiders. This daring raid against the capital of Japan was the first major attack on the Japanese homeland in World War II. After completing the attack against aircraft factories and munitions sites within the city, Lieutenant Farrow and his crew headed for China, where they ran out of fuel over Japanese-occupied territory.
Farrow, his gunner and another pilot were captured, tried by the Japanese and sentenced to death. They were shot by a firing squad in October 1942, and their bodies were cremated by the Japanese. After the war, Lieutenant Farrow's ashes were located, returned to the United States and buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
