Attack on Pearl Harbor
Pearl Harbor Survivor's Detailed Account of Events Leading Up to the Attack

Mickey’s first person account details events leading up to the Pearl Harbor attack and what caused the United States to join the war after months on the sidelines. Mickey, Pearl Harbor survivor, first decided to join the Navy while he was working at a Rubber Company in California of 1939. Although the draft specified that those twenty-one years or older sign up, Mickey signed up only a few months before his twenty-first birthday. His love for football led him to work on Battleship Pennsylvania and become a part of one of the best teams in the fleet. December 7, 1941 was not only the day for his fleet championship football game, but it was also the day Mickey was called into action.
