On the 78th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor that plunged America into World War II, dozens gathered Saturday at the Bend Heroes Memorial for a special ceremony to honor the 2,400 killed that fateful day.

Among those in attendance: Dick Higgins, a Navy radio operator and Bend's only living Pearl Harbor survivor. Here he shares his memory of those first fateful moments.

  1. It’s always incredible watching the videos of the Pearl Harbor attack.
    I can’t even begin to imagine what it was like for those that were there
    and those that lived through it.
    Today it has become almost commonplace to be involved in ongoing conflicts
    but we always need to take time to remember those who served and sacrificed
    many years ago…
    Thank you for your service and sacrifice Mr. Higgins.
