For the next 10 days, Chavez stayed on the ship, not knowing if his loved ones had survived the attack. When arrived back on shore, he noticed the water was littered with oil and dead bodies. "I started crying," said Chavez. "I'm not ashamed to admit it...all the Sailors who were trying to save themselves, and all the dead bodies, and the oil. "The ships were on fire, and they were jumping off the ships," recalls Chavez. Chavez served throughout World War II, and even rose to the rank of chief petty officer. In 1945, he was medically retired for combat fatigue. To this day, he is truly proud of the service he gave to his county. "To this day, I told them, I'd do it again if you want me," said Chavez. "It made me very proud that I had joined, and I still am." For more information, visit the Naval History and Heritage Command
