Some of the neighborhood kids living on Ford Island the day of the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor returned to Battleship Row on Tuesday.

Tom Davey, 83, and his younger brothers Jack, 79, and Jim, 81, along with sisters Joan Zuber-Earle and Peggy boarded the barge Remembrance to tour the USS Arizona Memorial.

Each of the kids have different parts of the day that stick out in their memory. The eldest Davey brothers said they remembered seeing a Japanese pilot flying low over their backyard after they ran out of their house following loud noises that interrupted their breakfast.

Zuber-Earle remembered the loud sound of the USS Arizona exploding while she hid under a table with her mother.
