For the 75th Anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack, I had the honor of attending the memorial and meeting many of the survivors, including four of the last five survivors of the USS Arizona-including Donald Stratton. I purchased his book, "All The Gallant Men" and the survivors were kind enough to sign it for me. I felt so honored. One survivor, Dick Corder of the USS Oglala, when I approached him for his autograph, asked, "You want my autograph? Why me? I'm not important". I replied with, "You're important to me."
