Hickam pays tribute to Airmen of the past, Dec. 7

Two Hickam Field survivors, Master Sgt. (Ret.) Kenneth Ford and Col. (Ret.) Andrew Kowalski, stand for the invocation Dec. 7 during the 71st anniversary ceremony commemorating the 1941 attacks on Hickam Field. Ford and Kowalski were both enlisted in the Army Air Corps during the attacks. Ford was given a rifle and five rounds to defend the beach from another wave of attacks. Kowalski reported to the Wing Headquarters building and fielded calls reporting the names and numbers of casualties. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Lauren Main)
