Pearl Harbor Survivor Celebrates His 99th Birthday

From the June 3, 2016, Hawaii News Now "Pearl Harbor survivor, longtime volunteer, celebrates big birthday" by Jolanie Miller.

Herb Weatherwax, 99, celebrated his birthday at the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument on Friday.

He volunteers there four days a week.

He was stationed at Schofield Barracks and on leave near Pearl Harbor when the attack came and remembers seeing the Arizona on fire and the Oklahoma keeled over.  The planes at Wheeler Army Airfield were lined up and demolished.
