One of the last of the Pearl Harbor survivors, Bill Jim Davis, has gone on to claim his reward. He would have been 98 years old today (8/31/18). Shelby Systems had the honor and privilege of interviewing Mr. Davis in 2011 for the 70th anniversary of Pearl Harbor Day. Please click the image (above) to see a brief video interview with Mr. Davis where he delivers a riveting eyewitness account of the day that will live in infamy (December 7, 1941). Mr. Davis will also explain what growing up in the Depression and serving in politics taught him. He will conclude with the ingredients that make for a happy life.
We, as a nation, are forever indebted to Mr. Davis and countless others like him who answered the call to duty and performed with valor.
