December 7, 1941
On December 7, 1941, today, the Japanese attacked us in Hawaii out of surprise. It lasted a total of 110 minutes, I was keeping track. 2,335 of our men have been killed. There were also 1,143 men wounded. This attack took place on the south side of the island in Hawaii of Oahu. This is where the naval base that I'm located at is located. This has been a grueling time for me. I've never missed my family so much.
It is now 2:00 pm and I've been wounded. I have a bullet located in my left shoulder. I was trying to save one of my buddies from getting hit.
It is 5:00 now and we've lost 3 battleships. Luckily the one I'm on, USS California is still in good shape. It sounds like very heavy rain outside from the constant bullets showering the ship.
