On December 7, 1941, Navy sailor Doris Miller was below deck on the USS West Virginia, sorting laundry, when he heard the ship's general alarm suddenly go off. Though Miller was a Black man, and thus relegated to being a mess attendant and cook, he leaped into action as Japanese planes roared above the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. That day, the ship's mess attendant would become one of its heroes.
