Aloha Everyone,

 

I've had this original 8 x 10 unpublished photograph in my collection for many years and on the occasion of the 75th observance of the Attack upon the Hawaiian Islands have decided to post it.

 

This is the armed provisional Naval Infanrty marching in formation on December 8th, 1941 along with their Navy Corpsmen and attached USN Medical Detachment at Naval Air Station Kaneohe.  Anyone familiar with Kaneohe Bay will recognize the parade ground and ammunition bunker in the background.  Also note the sandbag gun emplacements and the USN Photographers Mate on the right side.

Incredible picture..

 

Thank you for posting. I wonder how many more unpublished photos of the attack or the mobilization after the attack have never been seen..
