Wednesday December 7, 2016 is the 75th anniversary of the attack on the American military base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. The attack launched the United States fully into World War 2.

In 2000, South Dakota Public Broadcasting sat down with veterans of the South Dakota Pearl Harbor Survivors Association who were there in Hawaii on that day of infamy. To mark this years anniversary, SDPB posted some of these stories on YouTube.

Here Darrel Christopherson of Vermillion, David Townsend of Sturgis, and Floys Meek of Highmore talk about their experiences.

Darrel Christopherson and David L. Townsend passed away in 2007. Floyd Meeks passed away in 2011.
