Last officer from Pearl Harbor battleship USS Arizona dies at 100

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 02/10/2015 - 11:13

Olsen shares a light hearted moment with USS Arizona survivor Langdell during the 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor in HonoluluBy Sharon Bernstein SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Reuters) - The last surviving officer of the USS Arizona, the ship that was bombed in the 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, has died at 100 at a nursing facility in Northern California, his son said on Facebook. Joseph Langdell was a 27-year-old ensign who was sleeping in quarters on shore when bombs rained down on the Arizona on Dec. 7, 1941, an attack that would draw the United States into the Second World War, according to a biography posted on a historical website honoring those who served aboard the ship. "Rushing outside, he witnessed the Arizona sink in just nine minutes," the website said. He and his wife Libby raised two sons, John Mark, a retired Navy Commander, and Ted, who posts regularly about his father on Facebook and co-wrote the biography on the USS Arizona website.
