The First Hours of Pearl Harbor

The USS Ward played an interesting role in US History in that she was confirmed as firing the first and fatal shots for the US against the Japanese in WW2. Read here the first hand account of the action that day by Ken Swedburg who served aboard the Ward that fateful day, Dec. 12th 1941. This following photo of the gun that sank the Japanese mini sub is today on the Capital grounds of Minnesota in St Paul.

What I find so even more curious about this great story is that the USS Ward was named for the first US Naval officer killed during the American Civil War (War of Northern Aggression)

Pearl Harbor was a "wake up call" that United our Nation in defense of "Liberties", and we should Thank All Vets, because we were at peace when these sailors, soldiers, Marines, Airmen and Coasties were attacked, and 3,000+ killed.

Today we have many of the same people among us, who were serving when 9-11 occurred and still serving today. One and all they deserve our Thanks!!!
