December 7, as part of the Freedom Museum’s Pearl Harbor commemoration, LTC Ruth Anderson, USAF, (Ret) and Mr. Steve Krawczyk, a Pearl Harbor survivor, will speak about the Japanese Attack on Pearl Harbor.

The knowledge LTC Anderson gained about that attack during an assignment in Hawaii will be the subject of her presentation. Mr. Krawczyk, assigned to Hickam Airfield in 1941 as a machinist, will present his experience as an airman working on the airfield that fateful day.

LTC Anderson earned her undergraduate and graduate nursing degrees from the Universities of Minnesota and Kansas.  She was a previous Medical Operations Squadron Commander at Hickam Air Force Base, Hawaii, and extensively studied the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor.  Anderson is the current Supervisor for the Occoquan District on Prince William County’s Board of Supervisors.

After World War II, Steve Krawczyk used his GI Bill to obtain a Bachelor Degree and began working for the Sherwin Williams Paint Company. He and his family were transferred to the City of Manassas where he worked and remained after his retirement. Krawczyk has been a member of the Freedom Museum for many years.

The presentation will be on December 7 from 7:30 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. at the Museum, located in the Manassas Airport Terminal, 10600 Harry Parrish Blvd., Manassas, VA  20110.  Admission to the Freedom Museum is free.
