Bernie Weber, Pearl Harbor Survivor, Turns 101


From the March 22. 2019, Garfield County, Colorado Post Independent  "Bernie Weber turned 101 Thursday March 21."

It is such a pleasure to write about a Pearl Harbor survivor getting another year older these days.

Mr. Weber is a Colorado native.  On December 7, 1941, he was at Pearl Harbor on the USS Oklahoma.  He was listed as MIA to his family for ten days before the Navy located him.

Nearly a year later, he was on the USS Northampton when it was sunk at the Battle of Tassafaronga November 30, 1942.
