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.

You can purchase this book at the Pearl Harbor bookstore, but if you're not in Hawaii, check it out on our online store! Your purchase directly helps our nonprofit to continue our mission to educate visitors, young and old, about the history, events and people connected to the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Men's I Hiked Diamond Head Vintage T-shirt, White

Men's I Hiked Diamond Head Vintage T-shirt, White I was surprised that this was a two sided shirt. The picture you see is the back of the shirt. In the front is a miniature picture on the left side of the shirt. I bought this shirt because I climbed Diamond Head in June of 2006.

Hello Kitty And Friends Climb Diamond Head Pen

Hello Kitty And Friends Climb Diamond Head Pen is a nice pen for $2.95 when I bought it. I hope the ink lasts a long time.

Hello Kitty Hibiscus Diamond Head Pen

Hello Kitty Hibiscus Diamond Head Pen reminds me of the Hello Kitty Hibiscus Diamond Head Recycle Bag. I hope this pen writes for a long time.

Hello Kitty Hibiscus Diamond Head Recycle Tote Bag

Hello Kitty Hibiscus Diamond Head Recycle Tote Bag is very decorative. I love to bring it shopping.

Hello Kitty and Hibiscus Diamond Head Key Chain

This Hello Kitty keychain is both beautiful and durable.

Hello Kitty Diamond Head key chain

I think the Hello Kitty Diamond Head Key Chain is both soft and adorable. This key chain comes with a fairly large Hello Kitty laying across Diamond
Head. If you want to use it as a key chain, use it as a lone key chain because as a key chain it is way too large. I just keep it sitting on my desk as a decoration.

Plumeria with Rose Gold

Lovely necklace, very happy with it. It is very pretty, with the rose gold plumeria and the gold writing in Hawaiian which means Aloha.

USS Bowfin Token
Eugene Sopko
Great Keepsakes

I love collecting these tokens. Unfortunately, they didn't have them when I was at Pearl back in the 80s.

Challenge Coin

I was very pleased with the quality of the coin.

Sizing

I really liked the tee shirt's color and design. However, the size was too small for me. I normally wear a large. I don't know why it was so tight. Perhaps it was the material from which it was made (polyester).
