Circa 1941, The United States having just been drawn into war by the attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii , found itself needing to restore part of it’s naval fleet. Philadelphian Philip P. Debs, son of a Russian immigrant, was employed as a welder in the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard working on building America’s last battleship, The New Jersey. A natural born people-person and entrepreneur at heart, having had many odd jobs including selling fruit from a horse-drawn cart in the streets of South Philadelphia, dreamed of a better life for himself and his family.
