Pearl Harbor Survivor To Speak


November 30, 2017

The WNC Military History Museum and the Blinded Veterans Association will present an afternoon with Pearl Harbor survivor Craig Kirkpatrick on Thursday, Dec. 7, at 2 p.m. at the WNC Military History Museum.

Kirkpatrick was serving on the U.S.S Castor, which was anchored in Pearl Harbor across the channel from Battle Ship Row. Kirkpatrick had a front row seat to the “Day that will live in Infamy.”

Kirkpatrick will give museum visitors an eyewitness account of the attack by the Japanese and answer visitors’ questions. Plus, he will sign any Pearl Harbor memorabilia visitors bring.

This event is being organized by Joe Parker, the national president of the Blinded Veterans Association. Kirkpatrick is a life member of the Blinded Veterans Association and has written three books while suffering from blindness.

The Blinded Veterans Association (BVA) is an organization of blinded veterans helping blinded veterans.
