My aunt, CJ Garriott, was quite young when Pearl Harbor was attacked on December 7, 1941. She still remembers that day.
I was 7 years old when Pearl Harbor was attacked; Mother & Daddy were listening to the radio. I didn’t understand exactly what had happened, but somebody, I didn’t know who (the “Japanese”? Did they live in KS?) had done something really, really bad to Americans.
I was very scared, and went out, got my cat, went to my bedroom, and got under the bed. I was afraid they were coming to our house.
She was 10 years younger than my mom, Gail. I have several posts about Gail McGhee’s wartime experiences.
