MOUNT PLEASANT, South Carolina (Reuters) - Four survivors of the surprise Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor were honored aboard the USS Yorktown in Charleston Harbor on Wednesday, the 70th anniversary of the battle that brought the United States into World War Two.
The sneak attack in Hawaii in 1941 killed nearly 2,400 American service members and wounded more than 1,100.
Don Ralph, 89, said was an Army private first class and an X-ray technician at Hickam Field near Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, when the attack began early in the morning.
