December 7, 1941

Winging It salutes those who gave their all on December 7, 1941. A photo recap of devastation displayed with the Army Air Corp on that day.

Vindicator Ewa Field first hours of attack.

"One of the seven Vought SB2U-3 Vindicators of U.S. squadron VMSB-231 destroyed on the field at Ewa during the attack on Pearl Harbor, Oahu, Hawaii (USA), on 7 December 1941. All of VMSB-231's spares (the squadron was embarked in the USS Lexington (CV-2), en route to Midway, at the time) were thus destroyed. In the background is one of VMSB-232's Douglas SBDs.

More than 300 aircraft like the above pictured were destroyed on one single day. Over 2,000 military personnel died.

May God bless those souls and their families and a thank you for being in harms way for my freedom.
