Ed Sved

After the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor in 1941, young men from all over the country rushed to enlist in the US Armed Forces. Ed Sved was one of those young men, enlisting at age 17 and hoping to become a pilot. Sved became a Navigator in the US Air Force. And six decades after the war, he shares some of his experiences with WUSF’s Susan Giles Wantuck.
