Hummel reflects on Navy service during WWII
For Don Hummel, joining the Navy during WWII was a good and a bad thing. He still remembers the day Pearl Harbor was bombed. Hummel was playing a basketball game with his friend.
“We were shooting baskets,” Hummel explained. He placed a friendly wager that his friend could not make the same shot. “He made the sucker. We get inside there and we find out the Japanese are bombing Pearl Harbor.”
Hummel joined the Navy in January 1944. Many of his friends were joining the Army that day.
