MGA Graduate’s Son To Share His Father’s Pearl Harbor Story At Roberts Library - November 30

When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, Valda Adams Jr., a Cochran native and alumnus of Middle Georgia College (now Middle Georgia State University), watched in stunned disbelief as Japanese airplanes dipped and swerved from the horizon of Pearl Harbor and opened the door to World War II for the United States. Adams left a comprehensive written account of what he saw through correspondence and often talked about his experiences with his son, Jim Adams.

At 10 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 30, Jim Adams will share his father’s stories at Roberts Memorial Library on the Cochran Campus of Middle Georgia State. This event is free and open to the public.
