Pearl Harbor and the Kimmel Controversy— Second Saturday Webinar

On December 7, 1999, the Naval Historical Foundation hosted a colloquium at the U.S. Navy Memorial to discuss the question of accountability for the tragic losses suffered 58 years prior. Join us as we revisit this issue ahead of the 80th anniversary of the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. This webinar features an introduction from former Naval Flight Officer Ward Carroll, after which former General Counsel of the Navy Steven S. Honigman will provide an overview of the numerous investigations and subsequent efforts to exonerate the Pacific Fleet commander at the time—Admiral Husband E. Kimmel. Former colloquium presenters David Alan Rosenberg, and Randy Papadopoulos return as panelists to offer their commentary and respond to questions about that fateful day in American history.
