Cecilia Fox Mills: A Tribute to My Father

My father was a Pearl Harbor survivor.  (The picture at left is of me and my father; He stands with my mother on the right).
He joined the Navy in 1936 as an enlisted man he retired as a Commissioned Warrant Officer in 1957.
 
He was born in Winchester, Kentucky on April 2, 1917. Both of his brothers served in the military: my Uncle Cecil in the Navy, my uncle B. B. in the Army Air Corp.
 
He was on the USS McDounagh at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.  My mother and I were in San Diego, I was 7 months old.  My mother didn’t know if he was alive or dead for 10 days.
