"I think we should just visit the national cemeteries...and see what the cost of living in a free world is ..." - Ed Russell
98 year old Ed Russell registered for the draft as a young man, and when informed he would be stationed in Hawaii, envisioned an exotic life of palm trees and hula girls. As he states in his own words, "it didn't turn out that way". Near one of the flight lines during the attack on Pearl Harbor in December of 1941, Ed shares what it was really like for the common soldier on that epic day.
