THE DAY OF INFANTRY DECEMBER 7, 1941

I can still hear Franklin Roosevelt’s voice as he talk to the nation on radio and make that statement. The shock, dismay and anger felt by the nation. I was 10 years old and the big difference in my life was my cousin, Sonny was due in Boise to see his mother at Christmas time. His leave was cancelled and he never made it back from the war. As long as I live I will never forget that day. Morrison Knudsen had many Boisians on the Pacific Islands at time. One my uncles was on leave from the site. He later was with General Patton’s army as they march through Italy.

    I wasn’t born until ’43, so don’t remember any of the war and the only relatives I knew were ones who survived including my father and stepfather.
