Morning Team Show–February 17, 2020 (Monday)

It’s the President’s Day edition of The Morning Team Show with Dave, Art, and Pat (filling-in for Charlie), and you!

Pat brought-up the story of Donald Stratton today. Donald Stratton was one of the survivors on aboard the USS Arizona after it was attacked by the Japanese at Pearl Harbor. He died over the weekend at the age of 97.

Donald Stratton, one of the last USS Arizona survivors from Pearl Harbor who fought for the recognition of one of his heroic shipmates, died Saturday night in his sleep, his granddaughter told Fox News.

Stratton died of natural causes in Colorado Springs, Colo., his family said. He was 97.

The Navy veteran said it wasn’t until 2001, during a reunion of Pearl Harbor survivors, that he discovered the identity of the U.S. service member who saved his life and the lives of at least five other sailors: Chief Petty Officer Joe George, who died in 1996.
