Attack on Pearl Harbor
Witnessing the Attack on Pearl Harbor & Flames in the Water

Frank Chebetar was a 20-year old cook on a ship at the time of the attack on Pearl Harbor during World War II on the morning of December 7, 1941. On the 70th anniversary of the attack, Chebetar describes what he saw on that day as the memories move him to tears: “I can picture myself waiting to go ashore and then seeing those flames come up. Never can you forget that, especially a ship on fire.” The attack became the impetus for the United States’s entry into World War II.
