If Jefferson Davis had not gotten drunk and passed out during the 1826 eggnog riot U.S. history might be much different.

At 99 years young, World War II veteran Harold Whitish stopped by The Todd Herman Show on Thursday.


On the morning of Dec. 7, 1941, Whitish was on a guard ship escorting the U.S.S. Lexington aircraft carrier into Pearl Harbor.


Whitish was just 60 miles away from Pearl Harbor when bombs starting falling, and sat down with KTTH’s Todd Herman to talk about that fateful day, what being a WWII veteran means to him, and the worst injury he ever suffered.

Great quote.  Reminds me of a big learning from WW1 by the US Army.  Standing orders were pretty much that divisional artillery fire was bound to that division's boundaries.  Even if opportunity presented itself or another command was in serious jeopardy, orders were orders.  And usually followed since artillery was pretty much controlled and commanded by a division, the size of Corps.  After the war, this convention was swept aside.  George Marshall and team were quick learners.
