"Every adult American alive that day remembers where he heard the news of Pearl Harbor. I heard it on my way home from Sunday rounds at St. Luke's Hospital in Kansas City. The Japanese had destroyed most of our fleet by a sneak attack without declaring war. Their success in such a large mission, together with our demonstrated ineptitude, made invasion of our mainland and even our total military defeat terrifying possibilities.
Josephine and I sat up long after our two kids were in bed that night. We agreed that I had no other choice than to do whatever I could to defend our country and our family."
