Robert Weber shows the results of his latest fishing trip at Fort Kamehameha on the Hawaiian island of Oahu in February 1943. He boasts an octopus, snagged with the homemade spear in the ground beside him, and a Samoan crab and mullet, which, he says, you just grab. That's bilge oil on his legs. Weber was at Pearl Harbor when the Japanese attacked the United States' Pacific fleet on Dec. 7, 1941, and ushered the nation into World War II.
