Photograph article dated December 7, 1961 partially reads, "It was Dec. 7, 1941--20 years ago. Sunday morning, 7:55 a.m., at Pearl Harbor on the island of Oahu....Suddenly: 'This plane came over and dropped a bomb on the Arizona--right down the smokestack,' said Musgrave. 'I didn't know what was going on. I didn't know it was the Japs.' 'I heard this noise,' said Hunter. 'I was half asleep, I though [sic] it was just a few PBY's flying like they did every Sunday morning. Then, all at once, I heard the bombs fall. 'My God, Pop, get out of bed.' It was my wife, Eleanor, 'Get out of bed. The Japs are coming.'" At left, Cecil P. Musgrave, an employee at the San Fernando Veterans Hospital, and seated in wheelchair, Floyd Valentine Hunter, a patient.
