How would you feel if the guy right next to you got shot? Personally, Id run! My great uncle was only seventeen when he enlisted into the Navy. He had no choice but to fight. He was so heart broken to leave his parents and younger siblings. He started in Norfolk, Virginia as a gunner. All through his time in war, Harry definitely got some action, and it was all in the end because he later got five medals!!!!! Harrys final rank was Steward mate 3rd Class- that is pretty impressive! Im very proud of my great uncle, and if you have any relatives who sacrificed their lives, you should be proud of them too!
