Others weren't nearly as fortunate. Kennedy says between raids a lot of the Americans ran back into the barracks. Those barracks were immediately bombed, leaving only two buildings standing and few survivors.
Wiped out a lot of guys who didn't even know they were coming.
— Bill Kennedy, Pearl Harbor Veteran
2,403 Americans were killed at Pearl Harbor. Bill Kennedy is one of the lucky ones.
"I have no animosity for Japan right now. I even for a while bought a Honda," laughs Kennedy.
After Pearl Harbor, Kennedy went on to become a pilot. At 95-years-old, he is the last remaining survivor of Pearl Harbor in Tioga County.
