For Pearl Harbor survivors, the attack of December 7th 1941 was a shared experience, but each story is an individual one. For 94-year old Earl Smith, the day before the world would change featured baseball—as teams from different battleships played in a tournament he still remembers in vivid detail.

There were a number of services conducted today to commemorate the 74th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.   One survivor of the attack has been a part of these ceremonies for more than 40 years.  He spoke to HPR and shared his story.
