On Dec. 10, 1941, Don Green was a 19-year-old sailor serving on the ammunition ship USS Pyro (AE-1) The Pyro was anchored at Pearl Harbor's West Loch, and her crew was unloading ammunition destined for the waiting battleships. After serving his midwatch (midnight to 4 am) guard duty, Don retired to his bunk --- and was awakened at 0755 hours by the explosions of the Japanese attack. The Pyro was targeted by three divebomber airplanes, and Don was part of a gun team that returned fire and sent the plane burning into the sea. One of the planes dropped a bomb on the Pyro, but it missed its target and blew up the dock alongside. This was the most memorable experience, but certainly not the only significant one, of Don's twenty years in the Navy; these are the memoirs of a most remarkable man.
