One of the last survivors of the Pearl Harbor attack on the USS Arizona dies at 94 - The Denver Post

Monday, October 10, 2016

Rhode Island, his son told the Associated Press. Haerry was 94.Steve Szydlowski, Providence Journal via Associated PressRaymond Haerry is photographed at at West View Nursing & Rehabilitation in West Warwick, R.I., on April 20. Haerry was one of the last living crew members on the USS Arizona during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.Haerry’s son called him one of the first heroes of World War II. After swimming to shore, he found a gun and opened fire on the attacking Japanese warplanes. He spent the next few days recovering the bodies of his shipmates.Nearly four of every five men on the ship were lost, some 1,177 men. Almost half of the 2,400 U.S. servicemen who died on that day were on the Arizona. Another 429 sailors and marines were killed when the USS Oklahoma was torpedoed and capsized.Some were never recovered and remain entombed in the wreckage.Afterward, Haerry served for 25 years in the Navy, retiring as a master chief. He lived with his wife of 70 years, Evelyn, at a nursing home in West Warwick, Rhode Island.Haerry’s passing means there are only five surviving members of the USS Arizona, according to the Arizona Republic. The dwindling numbers was noted in a 2014 story by The Washington Post’s Peter Holley:“With Pearl Harbor survivors well into their 90s and some passing the century mark, their numbers are shrinking not just in Louisiana, but all over the United States. How many of the 60,000 or so survivors are left? Nobody seems to know, exactly.“Last year, 2,000 to 2,500 survivors were thought to be still alive, according to Eileen Martinez, chief of interpretation for the USS Arizona Memorial.‘They are in their twilight years, so now is the time to honor them and thank them for their service,’ she told the Reuters news agency last year.“On (Dec. 7, 2014), four of the nine remaining members of the USS Arizona Reunion Association gathered with dozens of other World War II veterans at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center in...
