Attack on Pearl Harbor
Alfred Rodrigues – Pearl Harbor Survivor Speaks About His Experience

Alfred Rodrigues' first-hand account gives a short but inspirational narrative about when the Japanese invaded Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Born on February 7, 1920 in Hawaii, Rodrigues was among the first few to be called into active duty in 1940. Expecting only a year of service, the attack on Pearl Harbor and the start of the war suddenly extended his service for an indefinite period of time. Rodrigues exclaims that 'freedom and peace are so fragile' and that it is up to younger generations to recognize how important they are and to protect them.
