World War II
The United States was just recovering from the severe depression of the 1930’s when it was
thrust into the global conflict know as World War 2. The threat of war had sharply divided
public opinion in the United States. Most Americans hoped for an Allied Victory, but also
hoped the United States could remain out of the War. However, on December 7, 1941 the first
bombs fell on Pearl Harbor and the dye was cast. The Japanese had attack the U.S.. The
following day the United States declared war on Japan. On December 11th the United States
declared war on the Axis Powers. Thus, America’s greatest generation entered into the global
conflict. This page is dedicated the Creels who answer the call to defend their country.

The Creels will be listed under the branches of service that they served in. Please feel free to
