Honoring the Boys!
Lost Files from West Haven High School, West Haven, CT. – files of the boys who left school to join the service after the bombing of Pearl Harbor!
December 7, 1941
Pearl Harbor was attacked without warning by the Japanese Navy on the morning of Dec. 7, 1941. That attack claimed more than 2,400 American lives and within 90 minutes, sank four battleships, two destroyers and damaged many aircraft, buildings and ships.
In visiting the West Haven Military Museum in November (2015), I discovered a frame on the wall as I was leaving. As I read and looked at all the names of the boys, I was excited to discover that this piece of history had been saved and preserved here in the museum.
I posted most of the photos that day on my Facebook page, but I held these photos for this blog post today – December 7th – to honor these boys who joined to fight in WWII.
I have pasted the pages of the boys names below.
