Following the Pearl Harbor attack on December 7, 1941, 19-year-old Ray was blown into the water and swam through oil and fire to Ford Island, an islet in the center of Pearl Harbor, Oahu. There he found a rifle and opened fire on Japanese planes. Later, Ray helped to recover the bodies of his fallen shipmates. One of the few remaining crew members from the USS Arizona who survived the Japanese attack during World War II, Ray Haerry Sr. passed away at the age of 94 on September 27, 2016.

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#77] The 130 programs are designed to air daily, Monday through Friday. The 15- minute segments are frequently coupled together to fill a 30- minute time slot at the option of local programmers.
