Survivors of Pearl Harbor Share Their Memories

by lewwaters

Wednesday December 7, 2011 was the 70th anniversary of the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor that thrust America into World War Two. In this video report, survivors recounted the horrific day.

On this 70th anniversary, 11 survivors of the attack from the Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington area shared their memories at the commemoration services held at the Red Lion Inn at the Quay.

The event was hosted by the Pacific Northwest Sons & Daughters of the Pearl Harbor Survivors who will continue services previously hosted by the Pearl Harbor Survivors Association, who have announced disbanding due to an aging and declining membership.

May God continue blessing these heroes. May their sacrifices never be forgotten.

  1. This was a moving event and all who missed it truly missed out.


  2. You are so right, Carolyn.

    I am pleased to get these heroes stories recorded now, before they are gone.

    We must never allow younger generations to forget or not be taught.


  3. It was wonderful getting to listen to the men who where there. It is so important getting their stories recorded for History sake. The young children & Young adults of this day are not being taught the histories of the wars and conflicts the United States Of America have been in. That is something that should really be taught. We have another two generations of Military coming home. their stories should be recorded for young children who are growing up now.
