  1. If I may offer a minor correction, the Enterprise wasn’t at Coral Sea, her sister, Yorktown, was. Enterprise escorted Hornet on the Doolittle mission, and though they were ordered south, they arrived in the area too late to participate.

    Best regards

  2. As an Augustinian Catholic I say to my kids: Imagine the fate of European Jewry if the Japanese were not dumb enough to attack Pearl Harbor? How’s this for history: The first Jewish victims at Auschwitz Death Camp may have occurred on the Sabbath, Dec. 6, 1941.
