Pearl Harbor

After months of research, I have finally put together as complete a story as possible about Pearl Harbor.  By combining Daddy’s military records, small pieces of information family members gleaned over the years, and internet resources, I think I have finally put Daddy’s story in historical context.  Along the way, I have learned an incredible amount of military information.  Part of the difficulty in writing this piece was making sure I didn’t put in too much history and wander away from the basic story.  Obviously, there has been a lot written about this event.  If you would like to know more about the USS Helena, see their website at usshelena.org.  Daddy was on the one number cl 50. 

Please open the power point called “Pearl Harbor” in the blog roll to the right and take a slow walk through history.   Enjoy!
