The Day That Will Live In Infamy
The photos are from the Navy History Site.
I had things to do today and this is what I came up with. Humble. That’s all.
Pictures of the Missouri moored next to the Arizona. I have been lucky to have visited the Missouri when it was at the Storage and Maintenance Facility at The Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremerton in late 1979.
A link to an article at The Daily Signal about the memorials following the attack is below. One of my Maternal Grandmother’s second cousins ran a boarding house outside the gate of Naval Station Pearl Harbor. I was told as a child that the house took some shrapnel and stray rounds as a result of strafing. I have never been able to confirm that. A guy I served with in VT-26 at NAS Chase Field in 1977-1978 told me that his father was onboard West Virginia. The Pearl Harbor attack links a lot of us in the Sea Service, it seems.
