SALT LAKE CITY — On the morning of December 7th, 1941, in Pearl Harbor, Colonel Emmett "Cyclone" Davis woke under attack.

In the air, Cyclone went in pursuit of the enemy.

"I flew three missions that day, and of course we thought they was going to invade us but they didn't," Cyclone.

Cylone's granddaughter found the footage of him that morning in the National Archives. Now he's sharing his story.
