101-Year-Old Returns to Pearl Harbor to Remember Those Lost

#1

Post by 428cj »

When Japanese bombs began falling on Pearl Harbor, U.S. Navy Seaman 1st Class David Russell first sought refuge below deck on the USS Oklahoma.
But a split-second decision on that December morning 80 years ago changed his mind, and likely saved his life.
“They started closing that hatch. And I decided to get out of there,” Russell, now 101, said in a recent interview.

Its so great that we still have a few of these Pearl Harbor veterans with us. BTW, I can only hope I'll be in as good a shape as he is if I would ever make it to 101.
