When I was a teenager I really didn't care much about Pearl Harbor or what it meant to America, as I was reading this book I could help to wonder how any young people today feel the way I did back then? I wish every young person in America gets to read a book like this, with this book you could feel what those young Marines felt. I cry and I laugh with those men, those heroes fought with pride, to defend not only them selves but America as well. Today we make Heroes of Sports, and TV personalities for doing nothing, These men of Pearl Harbor are the Heroes of our lifetime, we are lucky enough to have them give us a look at what was like to be a young man Fighting in Pearl Harbor. And I Guess a Thank You is in order.
