Another Pearl Harbor Survivor Dies

From the May 14, 2013, Prairie View (Kansas City, Mo.) Post "Jesse Dunnagan-- Prairie Village resident, Pearl Harbor survivor--  dies at 92."

Mr. Dunnagan was gun director on the USS California and had to jump into the water and avoid pools of burning oil swimming to safety to Ford Island.  He was initially reported as dead.

Back on the 70th anniversary of Pearl Harbor, December 7, 2011, Prairie Village declared it as "Jesse Dunnagan Day."

He also served in the Korean and Vietnam wars.
