Pearl Harbor Survivors Visit Friendswood Public Library

The Friendswood Public Library was honored this Flag Day with a visit from Pearl Harbor survivors George Hemingway and Mary Kerr (pictured directly below).  They shared their personal accounts and knowledge with over eighty members from the community and surrounding areas. George and Mary answered many insightful questions and all gained from their experience. The program concluded with the playing of Taps by World War II veteran Bill Crawford. Great thanks goes out to all who made this a special and memorable experience.
