Ag­ing sur­vivors re­turn to Pearl Har­bor, re­call at­tack

Antelope Valley Press (Sunday) - - Second Front -

PEARL HAR­BOR, Hawaii — A dozen frail sur­vivors of the at­tack on Pearl Har­bor re­turned Satur­day to honor those who per­ished when Ja­panese planes pierced a quiet sunny morn­ing 78 years ago and rained bombs on bat­tle­ships lined up be­low.

About 30 World War II vet­er­ans and some 2,000 mem­bers of the pub­lic joined the sur­vivors, the youngest of whom are now in their late 90s, to com­mem­o­rate the an­niver­sary of the Dec. 7, 1941, at­tack that launched the U.S. into World War II.

Herb El­fring, 97, of Jack­son, Michi­gan, said be­ing back at Pearl Har­bor re­minds him of all those who have lost their lives.
