#MonumentalAmerican: Pearl Harbor Navy veteran Dorie Miller


In light of the 77th anniversary of Pearl Harbor, watch Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle honor U.S. Navy seaman Doris Miller. When he enlisted at the age of 19, the Navy didn’t allow African Americans to take combat roles. When the Japanese attacked, he left his role in the mess hall and saved countless lives manning a machine gun and pulling others who abandoned ship to safety. He was a #MonumentalAmerican.
