The great spouts rose all about some of our battle ships. I turned on the radio just in time to hear that we were under attack by "the Enemy".

All I can think of is John down there where they are [attacking. I love him so I can't look into the future without him.
A second wave of attack came shortly after the first, with roughly Japanese planes converging on Pearl Harbor. By the end the Japanese had damaged or destroyed more than 18 American ships and over American planes. Another attack came and I watched it.

My only comfort is being up here where I can see so much. Eight Japanese planes flew over the house on to Waikiki and out to sea.
Their big red circles showed up so plainly. Lots of planes were high and the anti-aircraft tracer bullets are all over Pearl Harbor. I can see our ships guarding the entrance to the Honolulu Harbor. At times the bombs fall about these ships. Right now things are more quiet but I can still feel the jar of the big guns. I can see lots of smoke in back of the big hangers at [Hickam] Field. Where I sit to write this I can look out all over the sea so I watch and write at the same time.
No planes are in the sky right now. What I thought were submarines seem to be cruisers and destroyers. The water is breaking high over them. Big fires burst out below and are still raging with great flames shooting up into the air.
Eight Days of Infamy: The True Earl Durand Story
We hear planes and then we see the tracer smoke puffs of the anti aircraft being fired from Pearl Harbor. Although the entire attack lasted only a few hours, by the end almost 2, Americans had been killed and over 1, more had been wounded. Happily for Beth, her husband was not among those killed. He heard the unusual explosions coming from Ford Island way, went out to see what was up and beheld the Japanese planes flying no more than 50 feet off the ground coming right before him.
The [USS Oglala ] was blown up right before his eyes and the men worked hard to get all the men off before she turned over on her side and sank. They were not entirely successful. Then [the Japanese] got three battle ships and three cruisers, and some destroyers. John cannot bear the thought of seeing our beautiful big ships sent to the bottom with just funnels sticking out of the water.
Later in the morning he was called to try to move the huge crane…just as more Japanese planes came.
The Real Day Of Infamy
The bullets so close lent wings to their feet and they threw themselves over some sort of a high iron wall…so that they were between that and some cement. A piece of shrapnel came through a hole and scraped his side but not seriously, thank goodness. He dug the shrapnel out of the cement after all was quiet and brought it home. I had no idea how jagged and heavy they would be. They fought fires and did all kinds of things all day. The last big raid came at about twelve o'clock. See all.
