December 7, 1941 was a typically sunny, pleasant day in Hawaii when the 350 Japanese bombers and fighters appeared in the sky. Their intent was to strike a fatal blow against the mighty American Pacific Fleet.

As the US was not yet directly involved in World War 2, the attack that day—designed to initiate the Pacific war by crippling Japan’s only true threat in that theater—was an important one strategically for both nations. America’s capital ships were targeted, and 4 battleships were sunk and 2,335 Americans lost their lives. But amid the devastation there were people who fought back bravely, and Doris Miller was one of them.

A Mess Attendant and amateur boxer who did his training in Naval Training Station, Norfolk, Miller had just served breakfast aboard the battleship USS West Virginia when the call for general quarters came, and he rushed to his station to find it already knocked out by Japanese fire. An officer then asked Miller to help tend to the ship’s captain, who was mortally wounded, but still giving commands.

After helping to move the captain to a safer location on the ship, Miller manned a gun he wasn’t familiar with and began firing. He fired on the enemy until he ran out of ammo. The ship had been hit by several torpedoes and armor-piercing bombs, and he proceeded to help injured men to safety before the battleship sank.

On May 27 the next year Miller was awarded the Navy Cross by Admiral Chester Nimitz, who would go on to be the Supreme Allied Commander in the Pacific Theater of the war.

For distinguished devotion to duty, extraordinary courage and disregard for his own personal safety during the attack on the Fleet in Pearl Harbor, Territory of Hawaii, by Japanese forces on December 7, 1941.

Miller died in battle two years later, when his ship was attacked and sunk by a Japanese submarine.

On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 2020, Acting Navy Secretary Thomas B. Moldy announced at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam that USS Doris Miller is the name of the navy’s newest carrier—the heart of the fleet. She will be a Ford class carrier, at over 1000 feet long and a displacement of 10,000 tons and will be home to over 3,000 men and women. The ship is scheduled to be commissioned in 2030.
