  • Remembering those who lost their lives at Pearl Harbor

On Thursday, 76 years after the surprise strike that led to the United States entering World War II, Richmonders congregated in the Byrd Theatre for a retrospective glimpse of that horrific and historic day in "Infamy: Remembering Pearl Harbor", a multimedia event presented by Quill Theatre. He said he's still alive because he happened to be on the ship's starboard side.

"If we had invaded the mainland, we would have lost a lot of troops", the Pearl Harbor survivor said. "They're there as guardians of us".

"Today, as we Remember Pearl Harbor, it was an incredible honor to be joined with surviving Veterans of the attack on 12/7/1941".

On Thursday, the 76th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Americans look back on the tragedy that changed the lives of so many citizens.

He then thanked the six veterans for their service.

Veterans of several wars were among the crowd of onlookers on the pier next to the USS Cassin Young and onboard the vessel, including the two Pearl Harbor survivors - Freeman K. Johnson, of Centerville, and Emery Arsenault, of Peabody.

"I can not help but note that just as the crew of the USS Ward was not caught unprepared by peacetime mentality, likewise the Pacific Fleet was not trapped by fear and uncertainty following the attack that morning", he said. It happened at 7:55 a.m., the same time the attack began on December 7, 1941. "Along the way, they forged a cultural heritage of resilience that sailors continue to draw upon today". "Instead of retreating from the fight, America's Pacific Fleet dug in its heels".

The event was orchestrated by the Chicago Park District and the Chicago Navy Memorial Foundation.

"On that destroyer we were at Normandy on D-DAY, shelling the coast and we did quite a bit of shelling off the coast and getting shelled back", said Joe Battista.

More than 2,300 servicemen died in the attack. At 8:10, a 1,800-pound bomb smashed through the deck of the battleship USS Arizona and landed in her forward ammunition magazine.

"It's these folks, the Pearl Harbor veterans, the World War II veterans who have paved the way for our success on the battlefield and throughout the world", Mitch Day, the Senior Vice Commander of Post 4008, said.

"We are building up the military beyond what you ever thought".
