Childhood Pearl Harbor Survivor

1st pick square

The entire Middle School was treated to a talk about the Attack on Pearl Harbor by retired Navy Captain and former Commanding Officer of Pearl Harbor, Tom Marnane.  A big part of the talk centered around the impact the event had on him as an 8-year-old child headed to the bus stop when the first attack on the air base at Wheeler Field took place.  His knowledge of the history of the attack, capabilities of the ships and weapons served to answer the questions of many students.  His story of compassion and perseverance is an inspiration and we are very grateful to him, once again, for sharing his experiences with our students!
