Creel Military History
World War II
The United States was just
recovering from the severe depression of the 1930’s when it was thrust into
the global conflict know as World War 2. The threat of war had sharply
divided public opinion in the United States. Most Americans hoped for an
Allied Victory, but also hoped the United States could remain out of the War.
However, on December 7, 1941 the first bombs fell on Pearl Harbor and the dye
was cast. The Japanese had attack the U.S. . The following day the United
States declared war on Japan. On December 11th the United States
declared war on the Axis Powers. Thus America’s greatest generation entered
into the global conflict. This page is dedicated the Creels who answer the
