Narrated by Gary Sinise. Joe George is probably a name unfamiliar to almost every American, but on December 7, 1941, at Pearl Harbor, Joe George was every bit a hero in the opening moments of America’s violent entry into World War II. George, a crewman on the USS Vestal, which was moored alongside the USS Arizona on Battleship Row in the harbor, ignored orders from a superior officer and helped save the lives of 6 USS Arizona crewmen, the last Arizona sailors to get off the battleship alive. The film follows efforts by some of the men Joe George saved and his daughter JoeAnn to posthumously award the Medal of Honor to Joe George for his heroic and life-saving efforts on December 7, 1941 at Pearl Harbor.
