Since it is the anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor I thought I would see who might have any veteran memorabilia related to Pearl Harbor survivors.  


My Father-in-Law was a Pearl Harbor survivor having been posted as a Navy Signalman on the Heavy Cruiser New Orleans.  We attended veteran meetings in Pearl Harbor and he was always received as a hero by the people of Hawaii when he wore his hat in public.


If you have anything related to December 7, 1941 please post.

Here’s a tag to a marine wounded on Dec. 7, ‘41, while with the Machine Gun Group of the 3rd Defense Battalion at Pearl Harbor. He was on top of the barracks with his fellow marines firing rifles at the planes. Was hit in the abdomen from a gunshot.
