Local Man Remembers Pearl Harbor

70th Anniversary Commemoration
December 7, 1941 – December 7, 2011

Leatrice Fair-Genaux, Dennis Fair and Priscilla fair Nichols

December 7, 1941, is forever etched into the minds of many Americans as “a date which will live in infamy”. Early on that Sunday morning, Japanese air and naval forces attacked the U.S. Pacific Fleet based in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The attack was designed to immobilize the U.S. Fleet, remove the U.S. from its Pacific island possessions, and prevent America’s ability to wage war in Japan’s Pacific Empire. Of the seven battleships moored in Battleship Row in Pearl Harbor, four were sunk. The U.S.S. Arizona (BB-39) suffered the most fatalities with 1,177 crewmen killed. Alabamian Cloyd L. Fair was an eyewitness to this event.
A native of Gordo, Ala., Fair was assigned to the U.S.S. Arizona in late 1940 where he served as a ship’s barber. During a stopover in Bremerton, Washington, on the way to Pearl Harbor, he contracted the mumps and was hospitalized for more than a month. Following his recovery, Fair was placed on the U.S.S. Nevada for transport to Pearl Harbor. A paperwork mix-up prevented his return to the Arizona as planned and he was permanently assigned to the Nevada. “I always wondered if the Lord had a hand in that,” Fair said.
On the morning of Dec. 7, 1941, Fair was relaxing with friends and coffee inside the Nevada’s barber shop when the Japanese attack began. He remembered going topside and viewing the fires, chaos, and human carnage. Fair was asked to help treat wounded sailors below deck and said, “I helped carry the bodies down. Some weren’t whole bodies.” Despite its own damage, the Nevada struggled to move out, clear the harbor, and try to head out to sea. However, Japanese bombers targeted the ship and severely damaged it, forcing Nevada’s crew to deliberately ground their ship to keep the channel open. “You can’t imagine what a mess the harbor was in,” Fair said. 343 aircraft and 18 ships were destroyed or severely damaged in the attack, and countless bodies littered Pearl Harbor. On that fateful day, 1,282 Americans were wounded and 2,402 were killed, making it one of the darkest days in American history.

    As usuual, the American dumb goyim were duped, lied to and and led into a war by a President and his Neo-Con New York cabal of war mongers. Same as with the war with against Germany.

    Had FDR and his cabal not liquidated Governor Huey P. Long, there would have never been a WW2.American never learn from their mistakes.

    speaks the truth to Pearl Harbor:

    And while FDR was plotting war against Japan, on 11SEPT1941 he ordered the US Navy and US Army Air Force to attack(without provocation) and destroy, German naval vessel operating in international waters. And under Neo-Con Ben Victor Cohen’s Lend Leaae Act, FDR sent billions of dollars in war materials to Joesph Stalin and the Red Army–p-39 Cobras, B-24s, war munitions, locomotives, jeeps, food and weapons– to open a “second front” against Germany.
