[narration as John 'John Boy' Walton, Jr. reading from his journal
The weeks that followed the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor affected our family deeply. It was a time of great anxiety and uncertainty, and like all Americans we wanted to contribute to the war effort as best we could. My brother, Jason, was particularly troubled during this time. He wanted to serve his country, but doubts of conscience forced him to face one of the most difficult decisions of his life.
