Walter Oka (left) of Western Hills Ohio was 13 when he watched the Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. Mr. Oka was too young to enlist, but seven of his brothers volunteered, and three served in the 442nd Regimental Combat Team or 100th Infantry Battalion. Mr. Oka enlisted in 1946, and served in the occupation of Japan.
