Pearl Harbor Survivors: Harvey Waldron and Sikorsky JRS-1
Description:
Lt. Cmdr. Harvey Waldron, USN (ret.), a veteran JRS-1 crewman, visited the Mary Baker Engen Restoration Hangar and was reunited with the very plane that he had flown as a radioman in the days following the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. He recounted the events during a three-hour oral history interview in front of the Sikorsky JRS-1. This is a short clip from that interview. The Sikorsky JRS-1 is the only aircraft in the National Air and Space Museum's collection that survived the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Physical Description
The Purple Heart is suspended on purple ribbon. The medal is made in the shape of a heart bordered with gold. Within the center of the heart is a bust of George Washington. On top of the heart is Washington’s coat of arms.
Specific History
This Purple Heart was awarded posthumously to Edward C. Morse who was killed aboard the USS Arizona on December 7, 1941. The Purple Heart is the oldest military decoration in the world in present use. It is the first American award made available to the common soldier. General George Washington created it as a Badge of Military Merit. The Purple Heart is awarded to members of the armed forces of the United States who are wounded at the hands of the enemy. It is awarded posthumously to the next of kin in the name of those who are killed in action or die of wounds received in action. It is specifically a combat decoration.
General History
On December 7, 1941 Japanese aircraft flew over Pearl Harbor just before 8 a.m. The color detail was on deck to raise the flag at the stern at 8. The Arizona came under attack almost immediately, and by about 8:10 received a hit by an 800-kilogram bomb just forward of turret two on the starboard side. Within a few seconds the forward powder magazines exploded. This explosion gutted the forward part of the ship. The foremast and forward superstructure collapsed. Turrets one and two dropped more than twenty feet relative to their normal position. The explosion ignited furious fires in the forward part of the ship. The majority of the crew members were either killed by the explosion and fire or were trapped by the rapid sinking of the ship. 1,177 of the crew died on the ship.
