Of the thousands of stones at the Punchbowl Cemetery, it is the handful marked as “Unknown” that seem to grab my attention the most. This one, with the date indicating he died on this day seventy-eight years ago, is especially poignant today. #wwii #ww2 #worldwarii #worldwar2 #militaryhistory #history #punchbowlcemetery #unknown #pearlharbor #pearlharbormemorial #hawaii #honolulu #oahu #nationalcemeteryofthepacific #usa #unitedstates #usarmy #army #usnavy #navy #usmarines #marines #usarmyairforce #december7 #december7th1941

Today, on the anniversary of the attacks on Pearl Harbor, we're putting the memes aside to pay respect and remember the brave heroes who fought that day.⠀ ⠀ Next up is 1LT Annie G. Fox.⠀ ⠀ First Lieutenant Annie G. Fox was the head nurse at the hospital at Hickham field, which was Hawaii's main army airfield and bomber base, when the attack on Pearl Harbor was launched.⠀ ⠀ Fox "administered anesthesia to patients during the heaviest part of the bombardment, assisted in dressing the wounded, taught civilian volunteer nurses to make dressings, and worked ceaselessly with coolness and efficiency, and her fine example of calmness, courage and leadership was of great benefit to the morale of all with whom she came in contact," according to her Purple Heart medal citation. ⠀ ⠀ Fox was the first US service woman to receive the Purple Heart, which she received for her actions during the attack. ⠀ ⠀ At the time, the US military awarded Purple Hearts for "singularly meritorious act of extraordinary fidelity or essential service." When the requirement of being wounded was added, her Purple Heart was replaced with the Bronze Star, since she had not been wounded. ⠀ ⠀ Fox was promoted to the rank of major before retiring from the service in 1945.⠀ ⠀ #quote #quoteoftheday #quotes #qotd #quotestagram #instaquotes #military #usmilitary #leadership #leadershipquotes #quotestoliveby #quotestoinspire #quotesdaily #quoted #leadershipadvice #bullmoose #vet #veteran #veterans #usarmy #army #usnavy #navy #usaf #airforce #usmc #marines #pearlharbor

Seventy-eight years ago today.... • December 7, 1941 our naval station in Pearl Harbor, HI was attacked by over 350 Japanese aircraft. Amidst the chaos, one of the first war heroes of WWII would emerge from the ranks. That hero was Doris Miller. • Doris “Dorie” Miller was a seamans apprentice aboard the USS West Virginia where he served as a cook and was the ship’s boxing champion. When the Japanese struck, Dorie wasted no time helping to move wounded comrades to relative safety, as well as his mortally wounded captain, and administering first aid. He then ran to the topside of the ship where he manned a Browning .50 Cal machine gun and began reigning lead upon the attacking aircraft suppressing and killing the enemy. After running out of ammo he continued helping to move wounded comrades before being ordered to abandon ship. • For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity, at the risk of life above and beyond the call of Duty, and at the tender age of only twenty-two years old, Doris Miller became the first Black American to be awarded the Navy Cross. • Dorie would later be assigned to the USS Liscome Bay, which would take part in the Battle or Makin Island. On November 24, 1943, the Liscome Bay was struck and sunk by an I-175 Japanese submarine. Of the 900 man crew, only about 272 sailors survived; Dorie was not one of them. On December 7, 1943, exactly two years after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Dorie’s parents were informed that their son had fallen. • Every man dies twice. Once when he breathes his last breath, and again when his name is spoken for the last time. Rightfully so, Doris Miller’s name and likeness have been immortalized on numerous monuments, schools, roads, etc. Please remember this day and remember the heroism of Doris Miller. Never Above You, Never Below You, Always Beside You. • @reconsniperfoundation @marines @usnavy #hero #navy #usnavy #pearlharbor #pearlharborday #navycross #usswestvirginia #ussliscomebay #ww2
