Supervisory archives specialist Eric Kilgore will provide an overview of the partnership between the National Parks Service and the National Archives’ to digitize the records of all Pearl Harbor casualties, starting with the USS Arizona. Potentially, this project will enhance the research and education about the men who fought and died on December 7th.
