All but one of my friends died on the USS Arizona; that thing was engulfed in flames. Robert and I jumped off that ship together, and nearly drowned while swimming to shore. I saw Thomas get killed himself. I don't know how we escaped, for it happened so quick. Our country is in crisis. Stay safe, I'll be back soon.See you later,George Staff. "Pearl Harbor."
