The U.S.S. Ward at Pearl Harbor: Minnesotans Fire the First Shot of the Pacific War

Less than a year before America entered into the Second World War, a bunch of young Minnesotans joined the U.S. Navy.  After their training, these men were shipped off to serve their country. These Minnesotans proved to be excellent sailors who were proud to serve on the destroyer U.S.S. Ward stationed in Pearl Harbor in the Hawaiian Island of Oahu.  They kept the vessel ship-shape and proved themselves to able sea-men. When the crew of the U.S.S. Ward spotted a submarine trying to sneak in to the harbor entrance on December 7, 1941, the events that followed and the way the crew of the Ward reacted to them would earn all of them a place in the history books.
