Seaman 1st Class Ray Chavez, US Navy (Ret.) & the Commander-in-Chief of the US Armed Forces, President Donald J. Trump
Chavez was a crewman aboard the minesweeper USS Condor. The USS Condor just so happens to be the first ship to spot a Japanese midget submarine looking for it’s way into harbor. After the USS Condor noticed the submarine, a nearby destroyer blasted it to smithereens.
Then later a Japanese aircraft roared overhead .. and the vicious attack had begun .. at the moment, Chavez was off-duty and sleeping at home. But Chavez bravely rushed back to his post and remained there for a week, staying on his post days after the devastation was inflicted upon Pearl Harbor and his fellow uniformed brothers and sisters.
