I just sent a note to say hello to Neil Schwictenberg, the son or Arnie Schwictenberg who is a Navy Veteran and
survivor of Pearl Harbor attack. Arnie was on-board the USS Trever
I met Arnie and his son's family on the Metro on the
way to the dedication ceremony of the WWII Memorial . During the ride, Arnie shared some
of his experience with me. I was a volunteer for the ceremony and had the "volunteer garb" on which made it easy for me to approach him since he was wearing a Pearl Harbor Survivor cap.
My intention was to send the note on December 7th, but I had misplaced Neil's contact information.
A late, but heartfelt thanks to a member of the Greatest Generation.
