On December 7th, 1941, Americans huddled close to their radios.  The flash: a sneak attack against the U.S. Naval Base in Pearl Harbor.  Soon, military recruitment offices were packed with brave men and women who wanted to defend their country.

"Remember December Seventh!" became a rallying cry during World War II.  The people who were alive that day remember exactly where they were when they heard the news - and Navy Lieutenant Jim Downing is no exception.  He knows where he was... because he was right in the middle of the action.
