Dec. 7, 1941. It's a day and dark moment in United States history that continues to resonate with Max Green.

It was on that very day he saw the gruesome sights of bloodshed, panic, fire, explosions, and smoke clouds as Japanese military forces attacked the U.S. Pacific Fleet and Army fields at Pearl Harbor exactly 71 years ago today.

The Highland Springs, Va., native, in his early 20s at the time, was stationed as an Army combat engineer on the island of O'ahu, Hawaii, when Japanese military forces bombed Pearl Harbor. The surprise attack claimed more than 2,400 American lives – including 41 Virginians – and wounded more than 1,100.

Now at 94, Green said he prays a conflict like the one at Pearl Harbor doesn't happen again.
