The course of world history changed because of the attacks on Pearl Harbor, but on Midday at noon we'll hear how two individuals' lives were affected.
Dan Olson sent me an email about his conversations with Kenneth Deans and Carl Nomura, two men with two things in common: Ties to Minnesota and a personal history changed by World War II. Their experiences were completely different. Deans was on Oahu December 7, 1941, a 29 year old man with a wife and a military career ahead of him. Nomura was 19 and living in Los Angeles until he and other Japanese Americans were moved to internment camps.
