My dad talked about remembering Pearl Harbor. He said the following week they Closed his college where he was a freshman Cadet and drafted him into the Army, where he volunteered for the Army Air Corps. He later told my mom that he clearly remembered his 21st birthday. He said that he was flying a B-24 at night over Tokyo where he turned 21 at midnight. I can only imagine being able to look back in your life and see yourself flying a B-24 over enemy territory and being shot at on your 21st birthday.
God bless them all...
