I have many stories to tell. I will just tell one, though.
Grandpa, I have a World History thing going on, so can you tell me about your experience in the Pearl Harbor?
On the day of December 7, 1941, everyone was just minding their own business, until ships appeared on the horizon. I was in the Pacific Army at the time, and watching out for any enemies that could be afoot in the air or in the water.
Japan appeared out of nowhere on a Sunday morning. They practically had a map in their hands, telling which way they had to go.
They had four plans. Destroy the American Aircraft, destroy the dry docks, destroy the fuel factories, and to wipe out the Pacific fleet. We fought until the Japan was forced to retreat. They destroyed two big, major things.
They destroyed the American Aircraft, and the bombs destroyed our Arizona ship. Without it, we were powerless. The Japan did not know what to do at the time, since we forced them to flee. You can still see the Arizona ship, sunken and in the water, below a monument. You can also see parts of the ship that are above the water.
The Pearl Harbor was a sad and miserable day... I will never forget it.
