Welcome to the website of the Gold Country Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution.
This is a reminder for our upcoming August 18th Meeting. The Guest Speaker will be LCDR Lou Conter, USN (Ret.) who served aboard the USS Arizona when it was attacked at Pearl Harbor.
On the morning of 7 Dec 1941, the Imperial Japanese Navy launched a surprise attack against the United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Over 2,400 casualties and many more wounded resulted from the attack, which led directly to America’s entry into World War II.
The battleship USS Arizona was lost, with her dead accounting for nearly half lost in the attack. One of the fortunate survivors of the attack was Lou Conter, then 20 years old and serving aboard the Arizona. Conter went on to become a naval aviator and flew many dangerous missions in the Pacific Theater. Though he was shot down twice he continued a long career in the Navy retiring with the rank of Lieutenant Commander in 1967.
