This weekend marks 72 years since the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Earlier this fall we heard from Walter Wendt, 95-year-old naval veteran of Pearl Harbor.
He remembers the day of the attacks as one of confusion.
“Rumors filled –spread like wildfire. They said that there were Japanese landing at Pearl Harbor and there wasn’t any. They said they were landing at Waikiki Beach and there wasn’t any. There was a guy they put on watch – there was a guy came in, he shot em and it was one of our own men. The jitters were so high.”
