Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Clayton Fisher was an officer in the United States Navy during World War II aboard the USS Hornet (CV-8). He would be awarded the Navy Cross for his actions during the Battle of Midway. His award citation reads: The President of the United States of America takes pleasure in presenting the Navy Cross to Lieutenant, Junior Grade Clayton Evan Fisher, United States Naval (Reserve), for extraordinary heroism in operations against the enemy while serving as Pilot of a carrier-based Navy Dive Bomber of Bombing Squadron EIGHT (VB-8), attached to the U.S.S. HORNET (CV-8), during the "Air Battle of Midway," against enemy Japanese forces on 6 June 1942. With utter disregard for his own personal safety and in the face of intense anti-aircraft fire, Lieutenant, Junior Grade, Fisher participated in determined and effective bombing and strafing attacks on fleeing enemy Japanese forces, obtaining a successful hit on one of the enemy ships. His airmanship, courage and unwavering devotion to duty were in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.
