96-Year-Old Owensboro Veteran Recalls Being in Pearl Harbor During the Attack
Based on a history professor's vivid description of the moments just prior to the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, it's how I've always envisioned it happening.
Two soldiers--they may have been privates--saw something on radar (or whatever it was 75 years ago) they had never seen before.
Dozens of Japanese warplanes were heading toward Hawaii.
I can see it even though I NEVER saw it.
But 96-year-old Earl Davis DID see it.
The Owensboro resident and Tell City native was there 75 years ago today and was laying on his bunk reading a newspaper when it all began.
A neighbor of Earl's notified Owensboro Living and my friend, Danny May, got the chance to chat with and interview Davis about being a part of one of the most pivotal events in the history of the world.

And, of course, we thank Mr. Davis for his service.
