  1. My father was a Pearl Harbor survivor. He was in the Army Air Corp. On December 7th 1941 he left Schofield Barracks headed to the mess-hall for breakfast and the end of the Barracks exploded his first thought was the old boiler exploded then there was machine gun scraffing on the streets and he jumped into the ditch. He made his way over to Hickam Field the bomber he flew on and it had been hit. My father spent 22 years in the Military and was given a medical discharge, he flew a record number of flights during WW2 and was in Korea. He never joined and Pearl Harbor group he said it was a day he did not want to remember.

  4. I can’t fault your Dad for not joining any groups, Lon.

    I hope you recorded anything he said about it to you as these men’s stories are stories future generations should hear so they know what the price of their freedom was.
