    The documentation I have from John Deere says this LA was put on the production line on December 8, 1941, the day after Pearl harbor was bombed

    I asked my dad how he felt the day after Pearl Harbor was bombed, he was 10 years old, and he remembers listening to the news on a (battery operated) radio with the family. He said everyone was scared, unsure and worried about the future with war coming on.

    Probably how the people who were working on Little john felt as well.
