Its Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day ... say a little prayer for all those lives lost while protecting our country. I talked to my Elks friend Frank, who just turned 102 years old, about his time at Pearl Harbor. Yessirree ... a real hero and survivor of Pearl Harbor.
He wasn't supposed to be there, but his orders got mixed up and he did not get on the ship that left a few days earlier. He doesn't like to talk about it, but we sat for a time as I asked him a few questions. He said what he remembered most was the deafening noise. He said he killed a lot of people, for which he had no regrets. They were bad people. Maybe we can say a little prayer for Frank too.
