Veteran, 97, reflects on Pearl Harbor and Battle of Midway

A U.S. Navy veteran reflects on his experiences during Pearl Harbor and the Battle of Midway.

For most of us, the image of Japanese bombers flying over Pearl Harbor is the stuff of dusty history.

However, for 97-year-old United States Navy veteran John Buchanan, it's personal.

Buchanan was a teenage Navy mechanic on board the USS Cachelot, a diesel sub undergoing maintenance at the Hawaiian base on that fateful morning 76 years ago.

KENS 5's Jeff Brady shares his story.
