I’ve had the privledge to talk to some of the men who were at Pearl Harbor the day it was bombed.
You can read the AMAZING story from one of these men on my blog My Pearl Harbor Story (also below).
If you read my novel, Dawn of a Thousand Nights, you will discover that the events that Earl describes takes place in my book. (Only in my book the crash experieced through the eyes of my main character Libby.)
As we all know, the bombing of Pearl Harbor was the event that launched the United States into war.
And because of this the lives of millions of men and women were forever changed.
After this day both men and women supported the war effort in thousands of ways. And some of them even took to the air in order to support and fight for our country. The women pilots who ferried planes all around the country, in order to free a man to fight, were WASP (Women Air Service Pilots). They also play a key role in Dawn of a Thousand Nights.
So today take time to thank a veteran. Also take time to thank the women who supported those amazing men in more ways than we can imagine.
