Book Of The Day - All The Gallant Men By Donald Stratton

There's something to be said about a book that grabs your gut and never lets you go.

Donald Stratton's personal account of the "day of infamy" is one such book. As 1 of the 335 survivors assigned to the USS Arizona, All The Gallant Men is a haunting account of a man who not only survived this devastating attack, but reenlisted to continue the battle in the Pacific.

There aren't many books out there quite like this. In fact, there aren't. Donald Stratton is the only USS Arizona survivor to have written a memoir about the events of December 7, 1941 in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

The book is written in the 1st person and there's a handful of black and white photos in the middle to give you insight into life during this time period.

Honors Rendered

I had the opportunity to be in Hawaii Nov. 30 to Dec. 9th 2021, participating in the 80th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. During this time I escorted 41 Young Marines from the Pfc Bruce W Carter MEDAL OF HONOR Miami FL unit. I proudly ordered and received 15 Flags flown on December 7. 2021. These were presented to those Veteran's who have served and fought for our Country. Thank you for fulfilling my request in a timely manner, and the Certificates made these a personal gift which is honored by all..Semper Fidelis Gunny Lou Slagle USMC Ret

An Awesome Piece to my Pearl Harbor Collection

I love this canvas bag! It is super sturdy! And I can't wait to use it when I go to coffee shops to write!

Amazing gifts!!!

I was given a flag 6-7 years ago. For years I wondered how my friend got a flag from the USS Arizona memorial. After visiting the museum and seeing I could order flags, I have been giving these as gifts for family graduating boot camp, for birthdays, retirements, and any other special dates in the lives of service members and family members. These flags, given as gifts, are absolutely amazing.

80th Anniversary Commemoration

We were able to commemorate my father in law being on board the USS Nevada on that Sunday morning 80 years ago by being at Pearl Harbor. My wife and 2 of her siblings, as well as my daughter and her family, were able to be there this year. Having flags that were flown on the 7th at the USS Arizona Memorial are a tribute to the acts of bravery and sacrifice that occurred that morning throughout Oahu. The 2 flags I ordered were flown on the 7th and arrived with certificates very quickly. Thank you Pacific Historic Parks!!!
