Local Pearl Harbor Chapter Closes Down

From the Oct. 3, 2011, CBS47 TV News, Fresno, California.

The Central California Pearl Harbor Survivors Association chapter held its last meeting in October and will officially close December 7, 2011, the 70th anniversary of the event.

Chapetr 8 lost several members this year to what the Japanese were unable to do all those years ago.  The remaining six survivors decided to close it.

They used to meet monthly and had more than one hundred members.

Elijah Richardson, 90, was on the USS Pennsylvania and said, "You weren't safe no place."
