My Father ..may he rest in Peace, was stationed at Pearl Harbor ( Hickam Air Field) when it all went down. I could never get him drunk enough for him to describe what he saw and felt. He later saw close quarters action at Guadalcanal that was just as traumatic. He was just 18 at the time and the experience wasn't easy to forget or put behind him.
My aunt said it best, " I've shed a thousand tears over what that war did to Ronald." Thanks for your service Dad
