A Teen at Pearl Harbor

By Cindy Grigg
1     Pearl Harbor is famous in U.S. history. It was attacked by the Japanese on December 7, 1941. Many Americans were killed on that day. The attack caused the United States to enter World War II.
 
2     When he learned of the attack, one seventeen-year-old boy wanted to help. We'll call him Dan. Dan was a typical American teenager. He was a senior at McKinley High School in Honolulu, Hawaii. He played baseball. He sang in his church choir. He was a volunteer for the Red Cross.
 
3     On that Sunday morning, Dan and his family were getting ready for church. Dan was listening to the radio while he was getting dressed. The radio said that the Japanese were attacking Pearl Harbor. At first, Dan thought it was a joke. He ran outside. He saw puffs of smoke coming from the harbor. He called, "Dad! You'd better come and see this!" His father ran outside. Then they saw three Japanese planes fly by. They knew the radio report was true. Their island home was being attacked by the Japanese.
