Good morning! This day in Disney history Dec 7th, 1941. Walt hears over the radio news about the Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. He receives a phone call from his studio manager telling him that army troops are moving onto THEIR Burbank lot! The troops are going to provide an anti-aircraft installation to protect the nearby Lockheed factory! (This company manufactures airplanes for the armed forces). Talk about an interesting day!

Twice I have visited the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor. The first time was when I was in the Navy. It is important to remember the men and women who lost their lives that day. Such a sad moment in history that propelled the United States into World War II. - ScooterMike   1961.4 #58 12-7-12 2:20PM Like(2)  Reply

We visited pearl harbor this summer when we went to Aulani. It was amazing how peaceful it was with how many people were there. - DisneyVacationLover   343.0 #592 12-7-12 2:42PM Like  Reply

sneaky,although a sad momentin american history everyone joined in the effort as well as all the animation studios at that time. even the fab five joined the arm forces but doanld duck was the most popular animated toon for joining the armed forces . the others had their stories printed in the funnies and commic books. - pikarich   2355.6 #44 12-7-12 7:47PM Like  Reply
