Where were you when they bombed Pearl Harbor?
The Daily Journal is planning a retrospective of that fateful day for its Dec. 7 issue.
If you were serving your country the day they bombed Pearl Harbor or signed up to serve your country soon after, if you remember where you were and what you were doing that day or if you were actually at Pearl Harbor that fateful day, we’d like to hear from you.
If you served at the Battle of the Midway, or if you later served on any of the ships which were associated with Pearl Harbor the day it was bombed, we’d also like to hear your story.
“It is important to preserve the memories of those who remember that fateful day,” said Renee Jean, Daily Journal writer and assistant managing editor. “Probably no other war has affected so many people. It would be hard to find anyone who doesn’t have at least one relative or friend who served in the war. And even those who stayed behind at home found ways to get involved and help the war effort.
“We’d like to hear from you and tell your story on the anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. It is important that future generations be able to learn and remember what you know.”
Stories may be sent to the Daily Journal at P.O. Box A, Park Hills, MO 63601. We would prefer to receive written stories first, but you may also call Renee Jean at the Daily Journal at 431-2010, ext 117 to make arrangements to tell your story.
