A Boy No More SC by Harry Mazer

Adam Pelko witnessed something horrible: the sinking of the USS Arizona during the attack on Pearl Harbor — with his father aboard. Since then, Adam and his mother and sister have moved to California, where they are trying to rebuild their lives.

But no matter where Adam goes, he can't get away from the effects of the war. His best friend, Davi, has asked for help. Davi is Japanese American, and his father has been arrested, taken to Manzanar, a Japanese internment camp.

Adam isn't sure what to do. If he goes to Manzanar and starts asking questions, he could be risking his own life. But can he simply do nothing and risk losing Davi's friendship forever? Are Davi, his father, and all the other Japanese Americans taken from their homes responsible for what happened at Pearl Harbor?

In this riveting follow-up to his acclaimed book A Boy at War, Harry Mazer explores questions of friendship and loyalty against the backdrop of World War II, a time when boys had to grow up fast.

Soft cover. 144 pages. Ages 10-14.

Pearl Harbor Ornament !

Beautiful!

Exceptional!

The Sailor's Salute 80th Remembrance Hat is one of the best representations Honoring the United States Navy Men Who Bravely Served
during the Japanese Attack on Pearl Harbor 7 December 1941. 'Lest we Forget' those who gave their lives, and those who were forever
maimed by what occurred that horrific Sunday morning. We must also SALUTE not only these men, but those, whom like my father, who spent 48-plus
hours pulling the dead, dying and burning bodies out of the flaming waters of Pearl Harbor. These men have been forever affected by the tapping they heard
coming from the hulls of the destroyed and damaged ships. They did not have the heavy equipment to break through the Hulls to rescue them. It wasn't
until until Christmas Day night when they finally broke through the last ship where the tapping had been heard only to find the last man had died Christmas Eve.
Markings, one per day since the Day of the Attack had been scratched in the chamber walls where the men were found.

This is why this HAT, with this particular emblem, is important in the Memory of the Men of the United States Navy who valiantly gave their all in Defense of the United States and to World Freedom. Those who survived, they did not acquiesce, they fought back with intense resolve. The Japanese officially signed the Instrument of Surrender aboard the U.S.S. Missouri 2 December 1945 before representatives of 9 allied Nations.

This Hat should forever be the Official one worn every December by all of the United States Naval Forces. Its representation is powerful!

It's quality is laudatory, well thought out and constructed. The individual who created its Emblem deserves to be rewarded for its design.

Too cute not to buy!

On the Small Side

The color and printing on this shirt are fantastic, as is the fabric. The fit, however, is not. My wife normally wears an XL/XXL, but went up to a XXXL as she wanted to be able to use it as a work out shirt and loves these to be loose and long. This one fits more like a small XXL, and is really short. So much so that she is now going to order a mens in hopes of a better fit.

Home of the Free Because of the Brave

My dad served in the United States Navy during WWII and I love Hawaii so it is only fitting that I share these two loves by getting this flag that was flown over Pearl Harbor for the 80th anniversary commemoration of the attack on Pearl Harbor. I am a huge Elvis fan and know that he held a concert which raised $68,000 in early 1960s to get the ball rolling for this memorial to be built. He too was a great patriot.

Amazing artwork

I purchased the print entitled Tree of Life for a friend who has a great interest I. World war 2 history. When I gave him this beautiful work oh art it brought this tough on the outside man to tears. The price is unbelievable for this quality of work.

Fantastic

This makes anyone proud to be an AMERICAN!

Completely satisfied.

USS Nevada The ship that attempted to get out of the harbor on Dec 7 1941.

I love the hat Got one for me and my DAR friend. We both attended the 75 th and 80th Anniversary Memorial of Pearl harbor. With the Honolulu Chapter of the DAR a wreath is placed in memory of our veterans of the Nevada at Hospital Point. Sadly it gets lost in recognition of the Arizona and other ships that day in the harbor and only by belonging to the DAR do we get access to the base to the site to honor our Sailors. I have family that have served in all conflicts since the Revolutionary War. I am very thankful to all our Veterans who provide us with our freedoms still today. Sharon Stingley

Proud too own

I first visited Pearl Harbor in 2005 and bought a flag. In the past 20 years I’ve been fortunate enough to buy many more . It’s an honor to support the Pacific Parks and an honor present an flag that has been flown over the Arizona. We are Arizona residents so it means a lot to us
