Elden Baxter, Q-C's Last Known Pearl Harbor Survivor Dies-- Part 2


Mr. Baxter said: "The first Jap bomber I saw flew over the USS Arizona, and the pilot waved at us.  That's how close he was.  I saw the first torpedo about 300 yards off.  They just kept coming."

His parents were notified that he was killed in the attack.  He has had a funeral and will be buried on December 7, the 76th anniversary of the attack at Rock Island National Cemetery.
