Yes Matt agreed. But according to the UCMJ, if you are ordered to do something illegal...then you do not have to follow that order.

I was lucky, I was stationed in Memphis at the Naval Air Station my time in the Navy.

Watched a number of News Programs today. Not one item about pearl Harbor. So much for a day that will live in infamy . More news on who was patting someone on the ass.

My visit to the Pearl Harbor memorial was very emotional. My great uncle was there, on the Oklahoma, and died that day. I was fortunate that a survivor was there that day to speak with us. The strength of the day was so clear in him even after so many years. One thing was also noteworthy, as we boarded the small navy boat to make the trip out to the Arizona, they gave a short speech that included the warning that we were now on a US Naval vessel and NO disrespect, playing around or yelling would be tolerated. I got the impression that they meant it. It was comforting to know that they protected the memorial and the memory. That God for the brave who protect us all.

When I visited, there were more Japanese there than Americans!
They were extremely quiet and almost whispered.

My Dad was finally accepted by the Navy in January of 1943 after being turned down twice for being over age. He was 40 and a school principal who went to serve as a Seabee. After injuring his back he spent much of the time on the Pacific islands censoring mail.

I still have his "Remember Pearl Harbor" necktie with me and will never get rid of it. I also have a Japanese shell casing from Tarawa as well as rice bowls, an abacus, and used Japanese shell timers in the original case from Okinawa.

I'm proud of his service, leaving for the Navy with an ex wife and three daughters and my mother with a sister and myself (April 1943) Each got about $50 per month but all managed.
