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.
Notes from Japan on the anniversary of Pearl Harbor

Honolulu, capital of Hawaii – America's remotest island state located in the Pacific, is one of the country's most iconic tourist destinations. In large part this is due to the magnificent local dining, nightlife and shopping scene, complete with a marvelous beach lined with picturesque palms and high-rise hotels. Honolulu is also closely associated with the WWII history, namely the Pearl Harbor attack of 1941.
