Bishop Harvey
Commander Navy

Bishop Robert C. Harvey was born in 1917 and grew up in New Jersey. He recounts his memories of being 17 miles from Pearl Harbor on the morning that it was bombed, the torpedo battles he had with Japanese ships, and the events of his childhood that caused him to be interested in the military. The Bronze Star was awarded to him for his part in a rescue mission, saving men whose ship had been struck and set afire.
