PEARL HARBOR


8 December 1941 - Hundreds of young men turned up at the 90 Church Street recruiting center to volunteer in the Navy and Marine branches a day following the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Recruiting facilities strained to their utmost to process qualified personnel.

When I was a recruiter, I experienced the same reaction from patriots the morning of 11 September 2001 - Not of this scale, of course.
