Obituary : Joe Langdell , oldest survivor of Pearl Harbor’s USS Arizona dies at 100

Another bit of living history is gone. Joe Langdell, the oldest survivor of Pearl Harbor’s USS Arizona, passed last week at the age of 100.

Only eight crewmen of the original 334 who survived that day of infamy are still alive today.

1,177 perished on the USS Arizona, and Langdell once said, "We all have to remember that they did not die in vain." Indeed. Fair winds and following seas, sir.
