Survivors, friends, families remember Hickam Field attacks in 1941
U.S. Army Private First Class Clifford McFarland, a survivor of the Hickam Field attack, converses with Col. Kevin Gordon, 15th Wing commander, while being given a gift during the 75th Commemoration of the Dec. 7, 1941 Attack on Hickam Field ceremony Dec. 7, 2016, at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii. On Dec. 7, 1941, McFarland witnessed a Japanese aircraft maneuver around the church steeple, shoot at the barracks, and take out the B-17 Flying Fortress and B-18 Bolo aircraft on the flightline. He spent the remainder of the day transporting water to a machine gun being used to repel the attackers. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Nathan Allen)
