Mr. Robert Dorr is unable to appear December 7th due to illness. Lieutenant Colonel Ruth Anderson, US Air Force (Ret.), has graciously offered to speak about the Pearl Harbor attack on its anniversary, December 7th, 2015, Pearl Harbor Day.
LTC Anderson earned undergraduate and graduate nursing degrees from the Universities of Minnesota and Kansas. During her career as an Air Force officer, she served as commander of operational medical units at Hickam Air Force Base. While there she became interested in the attack on Pearl Harbor, especially the attack on Hickam Air Field. Imagine the young girls stationed in Hawaii as nurses suddenly thrust into the fear of attack and the duty of dealing with the horror of combat casualties. PWL The knowledge she has gained about the attack along with photographs and artifacts will be the subject of her speech. Mrs. Anderson is the current Supervisor-elect for the Occoquan District on Prince William County’s Board of Supervisors.
The presentation will be at the Freedom Museum from 7:00 PM to 8:45 PM. The Museum is located in the Manassas Airport Terminal, 10600 Harry Parrish Blvd., Manassas, VA 20110. Admission is free and refreshments will be served. For further information and directions to the museum, visit www.freedommuseum.org.
