Pearl Harbor Survivors

Today is the 77th anniversary of the attack which plunged the United States into World War II.  Usually, when I write about a Pearl Harbor survivor, it is to report his death.  I am always happy to write about one who sis still alive.

From the November 16, 2018, Desert Star  "Clarence Lux celebrates with fellow vets" by Jene Estrada.

Mr. Lux was celebrating his 98th birthday.

He enlisted in the Navy in 1940 and was on the USS Tennessee on that day.  He was discharged in 1946 as a petty officer.

He is one of three Pearl Harbor survivors still left in the area.  The others are Jim Donis of Palm Desert who was in the Army Air Corps and Ed Wise.
