Twin Counties reflect on connection to Pearl Harbor 76 years later

Thursday marks 76th anniversary of attack on Pearl Harbor

"My brother (Norman Thornton) was in the Air Force. It was scary, watching that". Added to this were 68 civilians.

"I don't know a lot, but I know the basics", said senior Wyatt Frank. "It was on the radio that the [Japanese] had attacked us at Pearl Harbor, and most of us had no idea where Pearl Harbor was", he said. "I had never heard about Pearl Harbor and not much about the Japanese".

So, we say, those men deserve an investigation, because the investigation will prove their personal bravery, their individual efficiency. It has an extensive deep-water harbor, Pearl Harbor, home to the U.S. Navy's 7th Fleet in the vast Pacific. My mother answered the door.

Stratton was just 19 years old when the attack occurred. She spent the night with Mrs. Horan, the house mother.

"I remember the stamps". It was him. He was on the beach. Of that number, 1,177 were from the USS Arizona, the wreckage of which now serves as the main memorial to the incident. America supported China with money and equipment.

History is not a smooth progression.

Assume for a minute Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore wins the Alabama Senate election on Dec. 12.

The USS Arizona still remains sunken, along with the remains of some of its crew members. They showed their love of country, and the determination to defeat tyranny and evil.

Regarding Jerry Norris' letter (Russian SEC intervention) what a pathetic attempt at sarcasm.

The Spirit of Liberty Foundation, which is a local non-profit, paid for his trip. Norris, try leaving the wit to the witty.

"We got out to sea because we could protect ourselves there and actually move around", Clark said.

Ahead of last year's massive 75th anniversary commemoration, we interviewed several Pearl Harbor survivors about their experiences that fateful day. Harris recalled her and her friends playacting the conflicts as children. If you simply multiply 70,000 by $240, you will arrive at over $16 million, that the city/county/region, can spend on non-essentials.

Say a silent prayer for Mary Miller's sons and Howard Keniston's sons and all who perished that day that indeed shall live in infamy.

Frank said he joined the U.S. Navy following his graduation from high school, one of many to do so from Decatur, he said. That sounds like a plan. Some sailors were on duty, but many were sleeping in or having breakfast or preparing for morning services. All are in their mid-90s. And of this we are very proud and on this we rest confidently our hope for the security of the future. We left that position and won the war. "What I'd like to know more about is the behind-the-scenes of what happened".

Sanford died 76 years ago today.
