In his footsteps

Durward Swanson, a Dec. 7, 1941, Hickam Field survivor, holds a photo of himself taken in front of the same building in January 1940 during his visit 70 years later to the Hawaiian island Nov. 23. The building was used as the fire house and guard house until the Japanese suddenly attacked on Dec. 7, 1941. It also served as the dormitory for Swanson and his military policemen.
