Ford Ebesugawa from the Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum will join us to let us know what is new at the Museum and we will present one of their popular recorded webinar programs: "From Enemies to Friends: A Peaceful Perspective of the Attack on Pearl Harbor." This pre-recorded webinar featured Dorinda Nicholson, a child-survivor and eye witness to the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the author of “Pearl Harbor Warriors: The Bugler, the Pilot, the Friendship,” joins us as we explore two different and possibly unfamiliar perspectives of the Attack on Pearl Harbor, from a US Marine Corps bugler and an attack pilot from Japan. Listen to the story of what these two men experienced the day of the attack, how they were connected through their quest for peace and how they developed a friendship despite a relationship rooted in adversity.
