    • Opening Narration: The weeks that followed the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor affected our family deeply. It was a time of great anxiety and uncertainty, and like all Americans we wanted to contribute to the war effort as best we could. My brother, Jason, was particularly troubled during this time. He wanted to serve his country, but doubts of conscience forced him to face one of the most difficult decisions of his life.

    • Closing Narration: Jason had searched his soul and found an inner strength that would help him enter a new phase of his life. Jim Bob's tattoo remained on his arm, a symbol of his youthful lack of judgment as well as his commendable ambition. It is to this day a topic which amuses everyone—except my mother.
