75 Years Ago Today

Whit Criswell Bryan - Photo taken when stationed in the Territory of Hawaii. 


Whit Criswell Bryan witnessed the bombing of Pearl Harbor from the Naval Mobile Hospital #2. The below citation was found in his military records. 

The Commander in Chief, United States Pacific Fleet, takes pleasure in commending U.S. Naval Mobile Hospital Unit Number Two for service as set forth in the following citation: 

"For meritorious achievement and distinguished service subsequent to the Japanese air attack on the United States Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor, Territory of Hawaii, on December 7, 1941. At the time of the attack and afterwards, this unit displayed conspicuous devotion in the line of duty. Its ability to cope with this disaster was responsible for the successful care of all casualties and the saving of many lives. The professional skill displayed and distinguished service rendered by this Hospital Unit were in keeping with the highest traditions of the naval service.
