Today In Communication History

On this date in 1941, a date that will live in infamy, this World War 2 documentary and propaganda film on the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on December 7, 1941. Directed by John Ford, the film won an Academy Award for best documentary short.

What Does It Mean To Me

USS Midway (CVA-41) entering Pearl Harbor

USS Midway (CVA-41) entering Pearl Harbor

We were on the flight deck of the U.S.S. Midway coming through the passage into Pearl Harbor for the first time. As we turned to starboard, in front of us, there is was. Nearly every man on board could not take their eyes off of the site. There rested the U.S.S. Arizona and above it the Memorial.

None of us would ever forget it.

It was a beautiful morning, just as on that fateful day. It was the third thing I remember coming to Hawaii for that first time. My first memory was of Diamondhead. What a fantastic site. The sweet early morning breeze, wet with humidity and so grateful after the trip from Alameda. Then coming into the passageway, the second memory, seeing the officer’s houses along the way, with each retired member saluting in the backyards of their homes the biggest man-0-war of its day. We all returned the salutes back. Then the turn.

To a Navy man, this is hallowed ground. This is the birth of the modern United States Navy we know today. This is the legacy we carry. From swabbie to Officer, from aviator to UDT, from Marine to cyber warrior, from submariner to black shoe, we are the sons and daughters of John Paul Jones, brothers and sisters fighting the good fight to serve and protect the greatest nation in the world. As they say today, ‘A Global Force For Good’.
