Interesting, I too have a customer about 85 years old who was at Pearl Harbor. The customer that I have said a huge amount of survivors of pearl harbor, about 100 or so a day are dying. He is a great guy to talk to informative and worldly. Bet they might have even met before.
the part about them dying is true. iwo guy told me that there used to be 4-500 members of his batallion at the reunions when they began in the early 70's, now there are 20-30. "the greatest generation" is disappearing before our eyes.
