It’s December 7th which means I will once again tell my familiy’s #PearlHarbor story. Mostly it is a story about the total badass who was my great grandmother, I called “Granny.” (1/13)
My great grandfather,”Granddaddy Deibert” was a Marine stationed at Pearl Harbor w/ his young family. At the time this included Granny & the eldest 3 of what would be 6 kids: my Great Uncle Harold, Great Uncle Glenn, & my grandfather “Grandpapa” who was 6 years old. (2/13)
In high school I interviewed Granny, Uncle Glenn & Grandpapa in person & Uncle Harold on speaker phone from California. Great Grandaddy Deibert had died when I was 9 so was not involved. I feel lucky I got to know them all. These are their stories (3/13)
