Ohio Valley Residents Remember Pearl Harbor

Colbert man gave all at Pearl Harbor

The surprise attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor began at 7:55 a.m. Hawaii time under a clear sky - perfect conditions for the swarms of Japanese fighter pilots to drop their bombs. Silver Star recipient Col. Robert J. Mastrion, USMC (Retired) will be the featured speaker. He grew up in the Flora area and started a dry cleaning business in Joseph in the early 1950s, one he operated for 13 years.

Japan used 354 planes launched in two waves to devastate the US Navy. "The enemy will try to sneak in and you gotta be prepared for anything even in peace time".

"Their job is to create a speech that not only commemorates the event, but clearly shows the point of view of their political character", Dibble said.

Lt. Gov. Mike Stack praised them, and by extension all members of the American military, for their past and continuing service.

"My husband's cousin was killed over there", Jenny Miller-Stewart said, recalling a trip she and her husband took to Pearl Harbor in 1983.

We wanted no more to do with the seemingly endless, vicious disputes that involved so many other countries. Some of those counted died of illnesses caused by the dust at the World Trade Center site, meaning the total could rise further.

He also participated in the Sepik River rescue of over 200 military personnel.

The president invited the men to see the Oval Office after the signing, promising them pens and autographs.

Stoll firmly agreed with the sentiment. "It was shocking and it means a lot to me".

The importance of that mission was evident during a recent class. Senior Kody Siebol said he knew what happened in Pearl Harbor, but "I don't know the cause, and that's what I'm hoping to learn".

Ganitch later broke out into song, delivering a rendition of "Remember Pearl Harbor".

Footage from the war also caught the imagination. One hundred and eighty-eight planes were destroyed, and numerous battleships - the heart and soul of the Pacific Fleet - were either destroyed or heavily damaged.
