Chandler went on to serve as a B-24 gunner, flying bomber mis- sions against Japan in the South Pacific. He succinctly summed up his reaction to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor: "This is not a piece of American history to be shrugged off after a number of years for fear of Japanese reac- tion. Remembering Pearl Harbor helps us to reaffirm the lessons of World War II - that the United States cannot retreat into isola- tionism and turn its back on evil. "The resulting war after Dec. 7, 1941 forced the U.S. out of its iso- lationism and made it a player in world affairs. The war also freed Europe from Nazi conquest.

"The Dec. 7 attack was a mon- strous evil. Confirmation, if any were needed, of Japanese inten- tions before their sneak attack at Pearl Harbor, was revealed in posters issued jointly in 1991, on the 50th anniversary of Pearl Har- bor, by the National Archives, the Roosevelt Presidential Library and the U.S. Navy. They showed Japanese documents which proved their air squadrons had commenced bombing in Oahu on Dec. 7, 1941, one hour before their ambassador to the United CHRIS HALON IN loved one remembered.

"We wanted to do something to honor her... We don't want people to for- get her," said Rachel Brittingham. "I hope people will stop" "She would have hated to see it [the home] without lights," Rachel Brittingham said.
