In 1940, still in high school, Henry P. Lawrence joined the Navy Reserves. Little did he know that a year later, in May of 1941, he’d be called to service and deployed to Hawaii. No one believed the Japanese would be aggressive enough to attack a U.S. territory. Their plan…to cripple the United States military. The attack on Pearl came hard and fast. I Was Just a Radioman is a collection of the memoirs of ARM Henry P. Lawrence, a WW II Pearl Harbor survivor, Black Cat, and decorated war veteran.
I really enjoyed this book. I served as an Aircrewman too. I flew in the EC-130Q and E-6A while attached to Fleet Air Reconnaissance Squadron THREE at Barbers Point, Hawaii. Thank you for your service to America Master Chief ARM Lawrence.
