*This podcast contains content that some may find graphic in nature. In this Episode of All 'Eers we learn about the attacks on Pearl Harbor first-hand. Lieutenant Downing talks about his childhood, his first days in the military, his family and of course, his account of December 7th, 1941. A short word of warning, some of Lieutenant Downing’s stories do become graphic as he discusses the details of the attack and its aftermath. He finishes the interview by talking about the future of our nation and the importance of keeping America safe and strong. Lieutenant Downing passed away at the age of 104 in February of 2019, but in the few short days that he was with us in Morgantown, he made an unbelievable impact on our faculty and students.Support the show
