A cook forgot to wake up Fred Cassidy on December 7, 1941, which meant he dodged the deadly attack that brought America into WWII. Cassidy had had plans to take flying lessons in a field near Pearl Harbor that day, but he didn't go. Today, Cassidy is a star volunteer at Memorial Medical Center in Modesto. (Linda S.
