none of them were there but they remember
My mother is 94 and remembers it well. On December 7, 1941 my father was newly married and along with his 3 brothers lived in Topeka Kansas. They of course had no idea how there lives had just changed. Before the end of WWII one uncle was in Egypt, one in Iran, one landed in Normandy and found himself at the end of the war in Austria, and my father found himself part of a 24/7 operation at the Pratt Whitney Engine plant in KC making radial engines for Corsair fighter planes. Their whole world changed and they had to change with it.
I remember when Bush started the Iraq war, that night I dreamt about Pearl Harbor. I dreamed about thousands of men and women swimming in a dark sea, trying to figure out the way up, desperately swimming one way then another, woke up crying.
Sure do, my uncle is listed on the on the bronze plaque at the Arizonia ----If you ever get the chance to visit this part of the United States do it, very moving
Well, anyone 80 or above probably remembers maybe even slightly younger........
It was a bigger deal than 911 solely because it brought us into WWII was a daily reminder for about nearly 5 years.........
Sure, my dad. He wasn't there, but he sure remembers.
My cousin would have been on the Arizonia at the time it was bombed. He happened to have had pnemonia and was sent stateside to hosital in San Francisco. Also my father was a Naval Lt. and served on submarines in the pacific. He was awarded the Bronze medal for his navigation skill in support of sinking enemy battleship in Subic Bay - during which their sub was in need of repair and were heading back to port when they came upon the enemy. Doubt our family will ever forget about Pearl Harbor.
My Uncle Robert was stationed on the Arizona, and went down in the attack. 70 years ago tomorrow.
The man across the street, here in Baldwin, was at Schofield Barracks that day.
