Pearl Harbor : Great-Uncle John High

Pearl Harbor, the "day that will live in infamy", touched my immediate family in a number of ways. Not only did my grandfather and several great-uncles enlist to fight the Japanese - but my great-uncle John High was on board the U.S.S. Oklahoma on that fateful day.

I didn't get much opportunity to ever really talk to him about his experiences, but I do know that I'm thankful to God that he survived the attack.
