Remembering Pearl Harbor December 7, 1941

I have a blog post scheduled to go live tomorrow morning at 7:53 A.M. It took me bit over five (5) years to research the names, but as a tease, you can see the list of names I researched at http://www.mdah.ms.gov/senseofplace/2013/12/06/mississippians-at-pearl-harbor/. I will update this blog post with the active link once it goes live, but I am not a morning person so it may be mid-morning or later (U. S. Central Time) before I add the link. In theory, this link should work once it becomes active: https://wordpress.com/post/upsdownsfamilyhistory.wordpress.com/69, and the title is Mississippians at Pearl Harbor – Mississippi Department of Archives and History. It took so long as I was trying to verify the burial locations and cenotaph (memorial headstones for somebody buried elsewhere) locations.

If you want a comprehensive list of those who died December 7, 1941, here’s one list: http://www.usmemorialday.org/pearllst.txt. This list includes both civilians as well as military. For the military, it includes rank and branch of service (with USA being United States Army, not United States of America, and would include those who were part of the Army Air Corps, better known as the Air Force today).

Let’s not forget all of the men, women, and children who died in the attack that day and let’s reflect and remember them. I included Find-A-Grave and BillionGraves locations when known and did my best to see that photo requests were made for those who don’t have a headstone photo. I occasionally photograph or transcribe a memorial where the headstone has Pearl Harbor or Pearl Harbor survivor on it.
