After the war started

Durward Swanson, sitting on the far left motorcycle, poses with his patrol team at the front gate of Hickam Field in this early 1942 post-attack photo. Swanson was a staff sergeant in the Army Air Corps when the Japanese executed their surprise attack of the military installations on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. Swanson went on to the Battle of Midway in June 1942 as a crew chief, where his B-17 was shot down, leaving him with injuries to his leg, side and face. (Courtesy photo)
