    Default Remembering the Pearl Harbor Firefighters

    As today marks the 62nd anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor I thought among remembering the soldiers lost there... it is fitting that we not forget the brothers who also died. Japanese pilots were instructed to attack any emergency vehicles they saw, after dropping their bombs on their targets. Many engines were shot to pieces before they could clear the ramp of the station. It's believed that as many as 13 FF's died in the attack, however those were military personel and they are "unknown". They are most likely listed under their other military titles, and not as FF's. However, there were 3 Honolulu firefighters killed in the attack. They are:

    HARRY T L PANG - HOSEMAN - 3 YEARS SERVICE

    JOHN CARREIRA - CAPTAIN - 23 YEARS SERVICE

    THOMAS S MACY - CAPTAIN - 34 YEARS SERVICE

    Killed in action at Hickam Field, Dec. 7th, 1941

    Rest in peace brothers, you are not forgotten.

    Excellent post 33, Indeed the brothers who gave their lives in the attack on Pearl Harbor will not be forgotten because of brothers like you who remember and share that memory. This is also a reminder to all that we too are targets.

    Rest in peace brothers, You will be remembered.

    Ask your Chief if he knows Gerry Glaubitz of Morningside Md. Mr. G. served as Chief of the Morningside VFD, is Mayor of Morningside, and is a past President of the Pearl Harbor Survivors Association. Let me know what he says? Thanks. Stay Safe....
