Doris Millerfrom Waco Texas: Stationed on the USS West Virginia at Pearl Harbor


Word came that “the captain and the executive officer, the ‘XO,’ were on the bridge and they both were injured,” says Simmons. “So Dorie Miller went up and physically picked up the captain and brought him down to the first aid station. And then he went back and manned a .50-caliber machine gun, which he had not been trained on.”

“It wasn’t hard,” said Miller shortly after the battle. “I just pulled the trigger and she worked fine. I had watched the others with these guns. I guess I fired her for about 15 minutes. I think I got one of those Jap planes. They were diving pretty close to us.”

Just days after the attack, Miller was transferred to the U.S.S. Indianapolis. In May 1942 he became the first African American to receive the Navy Cross, presented for courage under fire.
