Dorie MIller, a messman in the U.S. Navy was awarded the Navy Cross for his heroic deeds at Pearl Harbor (1st African American to be awarded the Navy Cross). ALL HE DID The Morning of Pearl Harbor Bombing was carry wounded sailors to safer locations, move his injured Captain (the Captain refused to leave his post & remained until his death), load machine guns, take control of one & began firing at Japanese planes (He HAD NO TRAINING IN OPERATING ONE). He fired until he ran out of ammunition.
There is nothing new in a GOVT LYING to their people to START A WAR. Indeed because most people prefer living in peace to bloody and horrific death in war, any govt that desires to initiate a war usually lies to their people to create the illusion that support for the war is the only possible choice they can make. http://whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/lieofthecentury.php#ixzz3xcFO8No6
Pearl Harbor Thought you might find these photos very interesting; what quality from 1941. Pearl Harbor photos found in an old Brownie stored in a foot locker and just recently taken to be developed. THESE PHOTOS ARE FROM A SAILOR WHO WAS ON THE USS QUAPAW ATF-11O. I THINK THEY'RE SPECTACULAR! PEARL HARBOR December 7th, 1941
