On Dec. 7, 1941, when Japanese planes attacked Pearl Harbor, I was working as a reporter for the Hono­lulu Star-Bulletin. After a week of war, I wrote a story directed at Hawaii's women; I thought it would be useful for them to know what I had seen.

Why this went unpublished for so many years is quite amazing to me. This account should have been published in Hawaii and the entire U.S. when it was originally written.

Thew story is wonderful, descriptive. Cannot imagine why it was not printed at that in 1941.

Perhaps the descriptive reporting on charred bodies may have been a bit too much especially in 1941.

Glad that this story has come to light. It's a bit of realistic History.

Ty, Carrie.

A great piece of writing. Anyone who hasn't been, go and visit the Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor, it's well worth a look.
