Hero of Pearl Harbor
(Note: The following story is true, but some of the sources are more reliable than others. I have attempted to resolve various discrepancies in detail.)
All lay quiet in the airfield and harbor below. The commander pulled back the canopy and checked his watch. 7:49 a.m. He reached for his flare gun and fired a green flare, the signal to attack. Then he told his radioman to send back to the carrier the code words, "Tora, Tora, Tora" ("Tiger, Tiger, Tiger"). Surprise was complete.
Observing the carnage below, he later wrote, "As smoke began to billow and the proud battleships, one by one, started tilting, my heart was almost ablaze with joy."
Born in 1902, Mitsuo Fuchida was raised on Japanese nationalism and anger at U. S. policies. He so admired Adolf Hitler that at one time he grew a small moustache to emulate his. Privileged to attend the Japanese Naval Academy, he trained to be a carrier pilot. At age 39, Fuchida was Japan's most experienced Navy pilot, and commander of the attack on Pearl Harbor. It was the height of his career.
As the Japanese swept across the Pacific, back in the United States, young Peggy Covell learned that her parents were among eleven missionaries executed in the Philippines. At first, she hated the Japanese. But soon she realized that her parents would have been the first to forgive them and pray for their souls. Following their example, she became a volunteer at the nearest prisoner of war camp, ministering to Japanese POWs.
