Attack on Pearl Harbor
Former Merrill’s Marauder Recalls the Attack on Pearl Harbor

“Our biggest base…you expect it to be attacked, but not blown apart.”

Congressman Kenny Marchant interviews veteran Bernard Jezercak, who fought in World War II as a technical sergeant of the Merrill’s Marauders, a special operations jungle warfare unit. This unit fought in the South-East Asian theatre of World War II and became well-known for its long-range penetration missions behind Japanese lines while engaging enemy forces superior in number. Jezercak is one of the few surviving members of the Merrill’s Marauders and his service has earned him the Silver Star and Bronze Star. View more veterans’ stories at the Veterans History Project.
