Victor Lively was a Gunner's mate aboard the USS Nevada at Pearl Harbor when the first wave of Japanese planes hit the morning of December 7,1941. From his perch high on the foremast, Lively could see battleship after battleship of the American fleet destroyed. The Nevada was badly damaged but was beached to prevent sinking. After the Nevada was repaired, Lively and the ships' crew were also part of the Normandy Invasion, as well as Iwo Jima and Okinowa. He says the motto "Join the Navy and see the world" definitely came true in his case.
