“Why did you choose to be in the war?”
“Simple, my country was attacked.”
On National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, students at Dodge Traditional Middle Magnet School were visited by WWII vet and POW First Officer Harvey Horn. He was just under a week shy of 18 when the attack on Pearl Harbor happened, and will be turning 100 this month.
Horn talked through his service across seas and about what it was like to be a prisoner of war. At the end of the visit, students presented him with a birthday gift and sang 'Happy Birthday' to him.
Thank you for your service, First Officer Horn.
