Mr. Baxter said: "The first Jap bomber I saw flew over the USS Arizona, and the pilot waved at us. That's how close he was. I saw the first torpedo about 300 yards off. They just kept coming."
His parents were notified that he was killed in the attack. He has had a funeral and will be buried on December 7, the 76th anniversary of the attack at Rock Island National Cemetery.
