Timeline Event:

Nov 28, 1941

USS Enterprise (CV-6) sailed from Pearl Harbor for Wake Island to ferry Marine aircraft to the island due to “War Warning” issued the previous day. Vice Admiral William Halsey approved “Battle Order No.1” that declared Enterprise was operating “under war conditions.” Following the land ing of the aircraft on 4 December, Enterprise made her way back to Pearl Harbor but was caught in storm that delayed her return. On 5 December, USS Lexington (CV-2) would subsequently leave with Task Force 12 to ferry Marine Aircraft to Midway, leaving no carriers at Pearl Harbor. This departure was also due to the “War Warning” of 27 November.
