Sunday morning, December 7, 1941, Mr. Doris “Dorie” Miller was serving coffee aboard the battleship USS West Virginia. Mr. Miller was an African American and the highest job to which he could then aspire in the US Navy was that of messman. At the time, the majority of US Military Officers were negatively critical regarding the allowance of African American individuals serving their country in the battlefield.

During a recent family vacation this last summer, I was shocked to run into a friend at the Ft. Clatsop Lewis and Clark National Historical Park. My friend held his audience captivated with an enthralling story of how it took six men and nine shots with muzzleloaders to kill an attacking grizzly bear. The moral of his story was: if we work together, we can accomplish great things… Including building an incredible fort capable of weathering the harsh Northwest winter of 1805 and killing grizzly bears!
