Last Hurrah for Pearl Harbor Survivors

From the december 25, 2011, News Leader Colorado "Blog: Witness to the 'last hurrah' for Pearl Harbor survivors" by Chris Vanderveer.

The reporter made the trip with 23 Pearl Harbor survivors to the 70th anniversary commemoration in Hawaii.

Jim Doyle said, "This is kind of a last hurrah for a lot of us.  I don't think a lot of us will be coming back."  He was there that day and saw it from NAS Ford Island and says that to this day he can't get that smell out of his mind.

George Richard didn't see the first wave come in, but felt them blow deck of the USS Tennessee.

George Blake was playing basketball at Fort Kamahameh gym when he heard the first shots.

Pat Duncan was on the USS Raleigh.
