"The possibility of an air attack by Japanese navy fighters and carrier borne bombers on air stations and the submarine base using either gas or incendiary bombs. It is realized that the events above enumerated are not likely of occurrence. On the other hand the vital necessity of Japan of a short war and the possession at its termination of land areas for bargining purposes may impel her to take dastic measures. It is the duty of the military to forsee and prepare against the worst possible eventuality." (General George S. Patton - excerpts from the 1937 paper he wrote on the security of the Hawaiian Islands called "Surprise")

Out of curiosity,
Is there anyone out there who was stationed at Pearl, before, during or after 12-7-41?? I was there from '61-63.
