Do you remember your 16th birthday? What type of celebration did you have? Did you get your driver's license and celebrate with your family? For many, that time of our lives was when we mapped out our future and began to make decisions about college and careers... and maybe our high school sweetheart.

How much fun would it be to celebrate your 16th birthday on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu? Now imagine you woke up on your 16th birthday... on December 7, 1941 as a United States Marine based at Pearl Harbor. Shortly after sunrise, you and your fellow Marines are preparing to raise the Colors when you look up and notice low flying planes and think to yourself... that's odd.

In Episode 83 you'll meet Bob Cook, 75 years after surviving his 16th birthday on Day 1 of World War II. Bob has an amazing story to tell from his first-hand experience. We'll also learn what Bob thinks FDR's greatest gift was and how it transformed his life. Please share this with every young person you know!
