Chuck Yeager: Where I Was on December 7, 1941 When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii

December 8th, 2014

I had entered the Army Air Corps September 9, 1941, fresh out of high school and a summer of work, huntin’, swimmin’ and fishin’.

On December 7, 1941; I was stationed at Moffett Field in California, still a crew chief, although I had applied for pilot training.

I was walking downtown when I heard over the radio – that the Japanese had attacked Pearl Harbor. All military personnel were ordered to their bases.

Was California next? Or….what was next?
