I was 2 1/2 on Dec 7 1941.  I don't remember the event but I sure remember WW2.  Imagine the difficulty of fighting a truly world-wide, multicontinent war against determined adversaries with no modern communications, no long range planes, no computers, etc. and a relatively small peacetime military to expand and train, fast.  We lived on the West Coast and I can remember how afraid the adults were that the Japanese would invade right after the attack.  Remember, no satellites, little or no surveillance aircraft, primitive radar.  

The successful efforts in the US to gear up war materials production while still feeding and suppling Britain and the home folks, still boggles the mind.

Thank you , sailor, for your post.
