Ep. 35 – Lt. Jim Downing (Pearl Harbor Survivor)

On the show today, we go back over 70 years and cover the most significant attack on American soil prior to 9/11. Our guest on this episode is retired Navy Lt. Jim Downing. At 104 years old, Jim is the 2nd oldest known American survivor of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Jim’s memory of that day is still as sharp and clear as it was the day it all unfolded, so we are incredibly lucky to get this firsthand account of the day “which will live in infamy,” as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt observed after the attack. Hear on this episode how Jim survived the attack, and rushed in to save his fellow shipmates. Also hear Jim explain why he had the greatest peace in his life during such a horrific scene of shock and carnage. This episode will take you back to a very pivotal time in America’s history, as told by someone who lived every eye-opening moment of it!
