Local Pearl Harbor survivor remembers attacks

GREENHILLS, OH (FOX19) -

A survivor of the attack on Pearl Harbor who now lives in Greenhills remembered the attacks on the 70th anniversary.

Maynard Bowling, 93, was an army engineer based at Pearl Harbor when the attacks happened.

No bombs were dropped on the airfield where he was, but he still remembers the morning of the attacks vividly.

"They were so close to us, you could see them looking out of the cockpit, see their faces and their rising sun insignia. It took a little while before we realized what they was," he told FOX19.

Bowling lived to have three children, six grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. He is also one of six brothers, all of which were in the service.
