Description: Robert (Bob) Browning was just a child in elementary school when he first saw the bombing of Pearl Harbor on newsreels and his “father and uncles were taken by the military to go to war.” Young Bob was mad that his father had to go to war, but at the same time, relieved that he would remain in the U.S. to run the San Diego base’s Non Commissioned Officers Club. Mr. Browning’s uncles were not so lucky, though. Both were sent overseas—one aboard the USS New Jersey and the other as a Seabee in the South Pacific. He recalls how lonely his mother and aunts seemed while their husbands were away.
