My name is Max Harris ~ I am 93 years old ~ I Live in Redondo Beach, California“THE DAY THE JAPANESE ATTACKED THE UNITED STATES”
Most people don’t know that December 7th 1941 was not the day Japan attacked the United States ~ On that dated they attacked Pearl Harbor, at that time Hawaii was not part of the United States .The first attack I know of was the one I witnessed. It was a around 10:00 am in the morning, it was a quiet morning and me and my girl friend we were walking along the beach. All of a sudden out of no where, American Bombers ~ 6 of them flew right over us and started dropping bombs about 500 yards from the shore line, they then circled back and did it again ~ they dropped at least 50 bombs and then flew away ~ the next thing I knew was there was about 200 hundred soldiers appeared and they quickly closed the beach.
Later that day on the radio ~ the news broadcast said that a Japenense 2 Man Submarine had been sited of the coast of Redondo and it was destroyed ~ 2 days later it washed up on the shore and it was true, inside they found the bodies of 2 Japanese Naval officers. As history now shows, this was not the only time this happened. AND I WAS THERE!
It was October 4th 1942, I was 26 years old
