Can anyone tell me how to add my father's name to the list of honored Maryland sailors who have pased on? My dad is George P. Atchley, present at both Pearl Harbor on 12/7/41 and (courtesy of Admiral Halsey) also aboard the Missouri for the Japanese surrender. He was originally from Arcadia California. To those of you who may have not seen Pearl Harbor, the movie, I heartily recommend it. Dad's grandsons have a new appreciation for what he witnessed. Ignore the critics and enjoy the movie. I may be contacted via .
