Pearl Harbor remains vivid memory
Ruston resident Ed Rolf still remembers being rudely awakened by the sounds of bombs exploding.
Rolf was stationed at Scoffield Barracks, 15 miles from Pearl Harbor. He had been up most of the night guarding the flight line at Wheeler Field, a fighter-plane base adjacent to Scoffield Barracks.
But shortly after “hitting the sack,” Rolf was awakened by the sounds of war.
