DONALD STRATTON was a nineteen-year-old sailor serving aboard the USS Arizona when 1,177 of his shipmates lost their lives (approximately half of all the fatalities at Pearl Harbor that infamous day). Determined to return to fight with burns to two-thirds of his body and advised by his doctors to amputate his limbs, he refused a medical discharge and sailed into the teeth of the Pacific War in June of 1944. Thank you Donald Stratton for your service and thank you for signing our books.
