  • Pearl Harbor survivors remember those killed 76 years ago

The surprise attack on US forces at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, took place 76 years ago - on Sunday, Dec. 7, 1941 - and left 2,335 dead and 1,143 wounded.

Another year has passed and the issue is as alive today as it was in 1942 when newspapers and other media across the country circulated a story about "an unidentified Negro messman" who bravely carried his captain and others to safety during the harrowing surprise attack by the Imperial Japanese Navy. Local survivors will also be honored.

The Corpus Christi Veterans band, Mary Carroll High School NJROTC, and the Corpus Christi Fire Department Pipes and drums will be featured during the ceremony.

"Today was an experience I was very fortunate to have", said grandson Beau Beaudreau, joined by his father.

Numerous guest speakers spoke about the importance of remembering events such as Pearl Harbor.

"We remember Pearl Harbor by their deeds and their willingness to fight for freedom", she continued.

Flags across our area are at half-staff on Thursday in honor of the troopers who died at Pearl Harbor.
