The terrorists who thought they would bring America to its knees on September 11th should have read some history.


The Japanese had the same idea when they bombed Pearl Harbor in 1941, and for months after the attack they had the upper hand against U. S. forces in the Pacific.
Then, 60 years ago this week, the Battle of Midway changed the course of the war.
Our Newsreel today comes from the News 7 archives of 10 years ago. Ted Stone has the story of a war hero from Roanoke who was in the middle of the fight.

[OUT Q=...News 7.]

((
In December 1941 as Japanese pilots began their flights to attack the U.S. Fleet at Pearl Harbor, they had no way of knowing that most of them were doomed men, taking off from doomed ships.
Six months later, most of the carriers involved in the Pearl Harbor attack would be sunk in the Battle of Midway... and a U.S. Navy flier from Roanoke named Neville Ammen would be there when it happened.
Ammen was a dive bomber pilot on the aircraft carrier Yorktown. He had a pretty good idea what would happen if he ever dropped a bomb in combat. ((NEVILLE AMMEN/FORMER DIVE BOMBER PILOT: I HAD DIVE BOMBED, PRACTICING, AND IN FIVE DIVES AVERAGED 50 FEET FROM THE CENTER. 50 FEET.))
Ammen had used that accuracy in mid-May, 1942, in the Battle of the Coral Sea, near Australia. It was a battle that brought the Japanese their first significant loss of the war... when Ammen and other Navy pilots sank the aircraft carrier "Shoho." ((VOICE OF AMMEN: I WAS ONE OF THE LAST PEOPLE TO DIVE, FROM ABOUT 15, 000 FEET. I DROPPED ONE BOMB, HAD A GOOD HIT. AS WE GOT AWAY FROM THE ACTION, THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER HAD SUNK, PERIOD.))
Ensign Ammen later received the Navy Cross for his role in the Battle of the Coral Sea.
But the Coral Sea fight was not a U.S. victory. Japanese pilots destroyed the big aircraft carrier "Lexington," and the "Yorktown" was seriously damaged.
The "Yorktown" made it back to Pearl Harbor, where it was patched up in three days. ((AMMEN: THEY SAID IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO DO IT, BUT IT WAS FIXED. AND THEN WE SET TO SEA AGAIN. EVERYBODY HAD TO MEET IN THE MESS HALL, PILOTS AND SO FORTH. AND THAT'S WHEN WE GOT NEWS, WHAT WE WERE GOING FOR.))
U.S. code breakers had learned a huge Japanese armada, possibly including four aircraft carriers, was heading for Midway Island.
The U.S. had a base there, and Admiral Yamamoto hoped that by capturing the island, he could draw what was left of the U.S. Pacific Fleet into a trap and crush it.
The fighting began on June 4th. Early in the morning, Japanese planes began raiding the island.
Army B-17's from Midway struck back by bombing the Japanese fleet from high altitude. The ships dodged the bombs.


Next, U.S. torpedo bombers attacked at low level. But the American planes were slow and obsolete. Japanese fighter pilots shot down almost every one.
The Japanese pilots were so busy shooting down the torpedo planes that they were out of position when swarms of dive bombers from the carriers Yorktown and Enterprise showed up high overhead.
The planes roared down on the fleet... and in six minutes three Japanese carriers were burning wrecks.
Ammen never took off in the Battle of Midway. His group was waiting for spotter planes to find the fourth Japanese carrier.
Japanese pilots found the Yorktown first.... ((VOICE OF AMMEN: THEY HIT US! I WAS RIGHT IN HERE))
Ammen was helping to direct anti-aircraft fire when the ship was hit... ((VOICE OF AMMEN: WE TOOK IT!))
Late in the day, with the Yorktown listing heavily, the order came to abandon ship. ((AMMEN: THAT'S WHEN I JUMPED INTO THE PACIFIC OCEAN. AND I'D JUST BOUGHT A NEW PAIR OF SHOES, AND HAD TO LET 'EM GO DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THE PACIFIC OCEAN.)) ((Reporter: What picked you up?)) ((AMMEN: A DESTROYER. WHEN I WAS IN THE WATER, I SAID "WELL, THIS SURE WILL MAKE A MAN OUT OF ME," OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT, TALKING TO MYSELF.))
The Yorktown was eventually finished off by a Japanese submarine.
But the battle was not over. American dive bombers DID find the fourth Japanese carrier... and damaged it so severely that it had to be scuttled. ((NEVILLE AMMEN/FORMER DIVE BOMBER PILOT: IT WAS THE TURNING POINT OF THE WAR WITH JAPAN. EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT.))
Historians on both sides of the Pacific agree.
Although years of hard fighting remained, Japan's chances for an outright military victory disappeared with the four carriers that went down in the battle of Midway.

Boetsch took office after his friend and mentor John Elrod died in July following a three year battle with cancer. Washington and Lee was in the middle of a 225 million dollar capital campaign that will soon add a new student commons, and rebuilt journalism school. Adding the weight of fundraising and Elrod's death, new issues soon confronted the school.

((LARRY BOETSCH/ACTING W&L PRESIDENT; SEPTEMBER ELEVENTH WAS A DEFINING MOMENT IN MANY WAYS IN LEXINGTON AND WASHINGTON AND LEE, AS IT WAS ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND THE WORLD. BUT IT WAS ONE MORE THING AT THE TIME THAT WE HAD TO DEAL WITH, SO THOSE EARLY WEEKS WERE DIFFICULT AT BEST.))
[RUNS= 19]
[OUTQ=difficult at best.]

In March, the school announced Thomas Burish, a longtime member of the Vanderbilt teaching community, as W&L's next president. Sometime this summer, Boetsch will return to his position as the Dean of the College. Meanwhile, in his last few weeks as acting president, Boetsch says he will take away a special bond with this year's graduates. The class of 2002 has suffered the loss of the school's president, the deaths of three classmates and will soon enter the post September Eleventh job market.

Even though Boetsch will be giving up his post, he says W&L will continue to prosper, and the school is in good hands with the leadership that will follow him.

While the money would go to pay for early child education some wonder if taxing coffee drinkers is unfair.

(( Maybe they should have a 500 dollar SUV tax instead....that would make more sense, 'cause that's where the money is, really.

11 47 33 IN: How All-American (laughs)

11 59 31 in: For ten cents, if it could help out the kids, yeah, but....I'm just kinda curious where they came up with a latte tax.

CONSUMER TAPE 54:27
(NATSOC COFFEE DRIPS, PAN TO

SUPPORTERS OF THE INITIATIVE SAY A TEN CENT TAX ON EVERY ESPRESSO DRINK IN SEATTLE WOULD RAISE BETWEEN SEVEN AND TEN MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR.
THAT MONEY WOULD BE USED TO INCREASE WAGES FOR CHILD-CARE PROVIDERS, HELP LOW AND MIDDLE INCOME FAMILIES TO OBTAIN HIGH-QUALITY CHILD CARE AND INCREASE THE AMOUNT OF EARLY CHILD EDUCATION IN THE CITY.
MANY ARE INTRIGUED BY THE IDEA.

11 47 48 IN: I think that it's a pretty painless way for us to help fund education.

BUT SOME SAY IT WOULDN'T BE THAT PAINLESS.

12 01 13 IN: Espresso drinks are already expensive as it is.

AND STILL OTHERS FEEL THEY'RE OVERTAXED AS IT IS.
STEVE EPSTEIN IS DOUBTFUL.... HE WONDERS HOW MUCH OF THE MONEY RAISED WOULD ACTUALLY GO TO SERVE CHILDHOOD EDUCATION.

11 43 26 IN: Unless they can really PROVE that this is going to help and the money will be spent directly on it and not uh, money for administration, then I would say no for the tax.

AND THEN THERE ARE THOSE WHO ARE SIMPLY RESIGNED....TAX OR NO TAX....IT WON'T KEEP THEM FROM THEIR DAILY CAFFEINE FIX.

11 59 52 IN: Coffee is addicting, so...people are gonna continue to drink coffee so....if they add a ten cent tax on it, I don't think that many people are really gonna mind, if it helps out for a good cause. Bob Branom, for CBS News.))

It's all part of the Dubble Bubble National contest to find the kid who can blow the biggest diameter bubblegum bubble. The contest was for kids aged 12 and under, and some were more successful than others as we found out while catching the competition in Roanoke yesterday. All the bubbles are measured using a special bubble meter. The top six finalists nationally will compete in July for a 10-thousand Savings Bond and a five- thousand dollar donation in the winner's honor to Children's Miracle Network.
