Sunday was Pearl Harbor Day, but many who were in Hawaii on Dec. 7, 1941, have passed away, making it more of a distant memory to younger veterans in the Lodi area.

Several members of the Lodi American Legion and Lockeford's Veterans of Foreign Wars chapter say they don't know of any more Pearl Harbor survivors in Lodi.

    My father was a Navy corpsman on Ford Island at the USN Medical Dispensary right next to Battleship Row. He participated in the entire battle and earned a Purple Heart. I still have a letter signed by Ronald Reagan honoring his service. Dad later fought in the Pacific war at Midway, Tarawa, and others. He, too, is gone now, and would have been 89 this year. It was one of the most memorable moments of his life. Can you imagine??
