Pearl Harbor Survivor Louis Conter

From the Jan. 9, 2014, redlands Daily Facts. //// Louis Conter was quartermaster on duty on the USS Arizona that day and he was the one who sounded the call to battle stations. //// He managed to get off the ship and he and another sailor spent the next two days in longboats patrolling the harbor and picking up other survivors. //// Afterwards, he was sent to the NAS Pensacola Flight School and flew a PBY in the Pacific rescuing downed flight crews and looking for Japanese submarines. //// He also flew jet fighters in the Korean War. /// He was visiting the Arizona and took part in the placing of one of his shipmates' remains in the hull. //// It Is Always Nice to WErite About a Living Survivor With All of Them Dying Now. --GreGen
