Scranton veteran who was at Pearl Harbor recalls attack

Bill Kennedy, 97, told his story as a survivor of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Labranche said there has been a ceremony for Pearl Harbor for the past 71 years.

Miller has been honored in many ways over the years, including the recent renaming of what was once the Waco Veterans Memorial Hospital to Doris Miller Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

Willard Carleton Orr, a Bangor resident who died in Pearl Harbor.

Lawmakers and the Naval Supply Systems Command honored three survivors from the Keystone State: Isaac George, Richard Schimmel, and Pat Bonnelli. "The wreath honors veterans who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation".

At about 8 a.m., Japanese planes filled the sky over Pearl Harbor.

The surprise Japanese attack, which started at 7:55 a.m., damaged or destroyed 20 USA ships and 300 aircraft; it also claimed the lives of more than 2,400 US military personnel and civilians, while injuring nearly 1,200 individuals.

None of the attendees were there for that day - what former president Franklin D. Roosevelt called "A date which will live in infamy".

Information on the vehicle itself is still sparse, but it's said to be a hybrid and built on an entirely new platform. At the Flat Rock plant, Ford is boosting investment to US$900 million from US$700 million and adding 850 jobs.

Almost half of the American casualties that morning were aboard the U.S.S. Arizona, Jindrich said.

"I think about my shipmates and how they were killed".

"Now that Vickie is gone, it is up to me, my siblings and all the rest of the family to carry on the legacy of Doris Miller", Henrietta said.

"A lot of our veterans, a lot of our military personnel passed away that day", says Post II Commander Bill Davies. "Instead of retreating from the fight, America's Pacific Fleet dug in its heels". "They are inspired by it and it's 20 or 30 degrees out here and snowing today".

The United States was particularly unhappy with Japan's increasingly belligerent attitude toward China.

To commemorate the moment the Japanese attacked, a ceremonial wreath was laid into Lake Como at 12:55 p.m., which was the exact time in DE the first bomb hit the naval base.

"Hearing the alarm, you report for your battle station immediately, in whatever you are wearing", Ganitch, now living in Alameda, California, recounted to Saluting Military Recruits when he was honored by the San Francisco Bay Area veterans organization in June. We'd shoot up whatever guns we had (at the attacking aircraft), but they didn't do no good.
