Name  Bob Warnock

Bob Warnock (October 24, 1912 – August 3, 2004) was a sailor on the deck of the submarine, USS Cachalot, when the attack on Pearl Harbor began. After witnessing a Japanese plane torpedo the nearby USS Pennsylvania, he fired upon the plane with his sidearm. It was once thought that these were the first shots fired by an American in World War II, though these were in fact fired by the crew of USS Ward. Whether he struck the plane is unknown.
