Nice Catch....If you read his introduction, you would have seen his reasoning for choosing the name. He already said what you uncovered.

I happened upon the name Alonzo Typer.
The Diary of Alonzo Typer by H. P. Lovecraft and William Lumley in 1935
Doesn't seem like a coincidence to me.
I choose to read his story all of my own accord. I have lived to a ripe old age myself without your help, and have done quite well. Why must YOU be the "truth police"? If this thread does not suit you, go away! We can judge the merits of the story all by ourselves. Most of what is posted in this site is pure BS anyway. Let me choose the BS I like. I promise not to clutter up the threads you enjoy.

There where instances in which modified Army B-25 Mitchell's, where launched off of Navy carriers in the Pacific front.
The USAAF was not the only service to use the B-25. Over 700 Mitchells were delivered to the U.S. Navy and Marines, under the designation PBJ.

What he did say is that he took part in what "we call the Doolittle raid". If you read my other posts, and Tomdham's. He would have corrected himself, but anybody serving in the USN during WW2 would have known about the raid, and not have gotten it confused with just a regular b-25 bombing run don't you think?
