NJ Pearl Harbor survivors: marking 70 years today…

December 7th, 2011 No Comments

At one time, there were 800 Pearl Harbor survivors in New Jersey. That number has decreased to about 7. Ralph Jeffers of Monmouth County and Thomas Mahoney of Union both were serving in Hawaii on the USS Curtiss, a seaplane tender, on December 7, 1941. To commemorate the 70th anniversary, there will be an event today at 11am at the Richard Stockton Service Area in Hamilton. Read the powerful recollections of these veterans by reading the article on dailyrecord.com.
