Remembering Pearl Harbor

Every December 7th my thoughts turn to those who witnessed that "date of infamy," an event that truly changed the course of history. As Medical Department historian, I've had the rare privilege of meeting and recording the memories of some our medical veterans--physicians, nurses, dentists, and hospital corpsmen--who not only survived the Japanese attack, but helped treat the victims. On this Pearl Harbor Day we'd like to share excerpts from some of those oral histories. Check back throughout the day to help us commemorate this World War II event. - Jan Herman
