As we all know, Sunday, December 7, 1941 saw a sudden and deliberate attack on the U.S. Navy at anchor in Pearl Harbor Hawaii. The attack drew America into World War Two and was labeled by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt as “A day that will live in infamy.”
But few of us know much of what those men in the ships saw and endured on that fateful morning.
I was fortunate to have attended the 70th Commemoration of that attack last year and recorded the words of the few remaining survivors in our area.
May we never forget or let our guard drop like that again.
