Memories of the Pearl Harbor Attack-- Part 1

From the Dec. 4, 2011, Virginia Pilot.

Eugen Gorman, 90 of Virginia Beach saw a plane flying by while getting dressed and recognized it as Japanese.  Still unalarmed, he walked to the mess hall for breakfast when it struck him what was afoot and he shouted, "The Japs are here!"

He went to his battle station, an obsolete gun with no anti-aircraft capability and quickly realized it was useless.

He never joined the local Pearl Harbor Survivors Association, saying it was not the most important thing that happened in his life.
