Undeterred

Undeterred

Diving into boiling hot water covered with oil, a hero responds. He freed the battleship USS Nevada from her berth during the Pearl Harbor attack. If it were not for Chief Bos’n Edwin J. Hill’s quick action, the USS Nevada’s run for the sea would never have occurred. She was the only battleship to sortie. Edwin J. Hill’s Irish roots lie in Cape May, New Jersey, the country’s first seaside resort. He resided at the renowned Windsor Hotel.. Mr. Hill met his beautiful wife in Ireland during World War I. They raised their children in the Philadelphia area and then onto Long Beach, California, as World War II loomed. Mr. Hill was three months from retirement when the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor occurred. Sacrificing all for his country, Mr. Hill was a true hero that day. He freed the battleship he was aboard and gave his life to save many others. Chief Bos’n Hill was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.
