Aircraft Carrier to be Named after Pearl Harbor Hero

Enlisted Sailor

Instead of presidents or admirals, an African American Enlisted Sailor – a hero during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor – will be honored when the USS Doris Miller is christened. David Martin talks with Acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly, who broke with tradition to name the next Navy aircraft carrier after an enlisted man, and with relatives of Doris “Dorie” Miller, who was not initially recognized for his valor on that “Day of Infamy.”
