Meet Orvin Piellwitz one of the last survivors of the attack on Pearl Harbor. He is pictured here (left) with one of our Zero pilots, Rob Hertberg.
Orvin visited our Museum during our Pearl Harbor Day Event. He was a seaman recruit in the Navy, stationed at Kaneohi Bay, Hawaii when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. Orvin stayed in the Navy and eventually retired as a Chief Petty Officer.
Thanks for making our day Orvin!!
