Remembering Pearl Harbor. Interesting historical footnote: the USS Phoenix (CL-46) was at Pearl that day and escaped the attack unscathed. She was eventually sold to Argentina and renamed the ARA General Belgrano. After almost 3 decades of service with Argentina, she was sunk on 2 May 1982 by the British submarine HMS Conqueror during the Falklands War. Conqueror is the only nuclear-powered submarine to ever engage an enemy vessel in actual combat.

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.
