Description: Valerie Jolly, nee Ohler, was just a young child when Pearl Harbor was bombed, but she vividly recalls the tense hours leading up to President Roosevelt’s declaration of war against Japan. Teachers all brought radios to school, and we listened to Roosevelt’s speech, she says. It wasn’t long after that that people just started doing what they could to make things better. Valerie quickly overcame her fear that her father would be drafted and began volunteering in support of the war effort.
