Fifty-five Japanese also were killed. They sank or submerged 19 ships (including eight battleships destroyed or disabled) and damaged or destroyed more than 300 planes.

The bell from the USS Utah, one of the first ships lost during the attack on.

Bennett remembers hearing newspaper reports about the war in between movies at the local cinema. "I took the dog wrench off the bulkhead, broke the padlock on the ammo boxes and I loaded No. 2.50-caliber machine gun all by myself, and I swear before almighty God that I shot and hit the first two torpedo planes that went by the [destroyer USS] Bagley".

Today is a solemn day for America. As for the destroyer, it rested unseen at the bottom of Ormoc Bay - that is, until Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Paul Allen's expedition crew decided to find it.

A half dozen veterans of the attack, wearing medals and military hats, attended the ceremony and bantered with the president as he commemorated their service. In the aftermath of the attack, nearly everyone was sure the Japanese would return.

Museum admission and parking will be waived from 10 to 11 a.m. for the memorial service.

"The thing that was really bad is that Hawaii is a rainbow of people".

From 1934 to 1940, Vinson pushed through Congress four major naval appropriations bills.

George Moran read aloud the names of the 44 people from central Berkshire County who served at Pearl Harbor.

"There were supposed to be maneuvers Sunday morning, a joint exercise with the Army, Navy, Marines and Air Corps".

"I said, if a shark comes around we'll punch them in the nose", he said. For more than a decade, Stratton and Bruner have lobbied for George to get a Navy Cross or other medal. Several families that sent multiple sons to the war saw them all return home safely, Davenport said.

Vinson, a rural Georgian, was an unlikely advocate of global naval supremacy. The two met in D.C.in November and swapped stories about World War II. The weird part, beyond the slight misquote, is the addition of the exclamation mark. He was elected for 26 straight congressional terms.

Now-a-days, Conter has six kids, 12 grandkids and 20 great-grandkids and enjoys staying busy with his frequent trips across the United States to brief different groups on his military experiences.

Hansen's next log entry noted that the nation was at war again. While he was only in the eighth grade, Sjogren said he was quite knowledgeable about the war raging in Europe because it interested him.

Today, most Americans do not recognize Vinson's contributions to American security.
