December 7th, 1941

I wonder where Chick Harmer was on December 7th, 1941.

Maybe his log book would tell us?
I know where he was on August 24, 1942.

Where was he?

His daughter commented…

Thanks for posting this, Pierre. I know Dad’s first child Elaine was born Oct 15, 1940 in Hawaii while he was at sea. Mom was all alone giving birth in the hospital. The nurse brought in flowers which she thought were from Dad, but it turned out the nurse made a mistake and they belonged in another room. My guess is that Dad was transferred before Pearl Harbor, but I don’t know that piece. Never heard from him on that.

    • Merci beaucoup Corliss for this update. I will update the blog. I truly value your contribution. Your Dad was an unsung hero who deserves more recognition as well as all the naval aviators who were with him in 1942 and later on.
