On Sunday, March 16, 2014 at 1 PM, visitors to the Palm Springs Air Museum will have a chance to see the new documentary, Pearl Harbor: One Last Goodbye”. Executive Producer Liz Watkins will be present to answer questions. The program is included with regular admission to the museum, and free to members.
Starting in June of 2011 Liz Watkins, worked with Holly Shelton and retired Lt. Colonel Bill Phillips to organize and raise funds so that six Pensacola, Florida area Pearl Harbor survivors could return to Pearl for the 70th anniversary of the attack. The film documents the journey to make the dream of these “greatest generation” heroes to say one last goodbye to their fallen comrades come true. Along with 12 support personnel Watkins Productions accompanied these men and documented the entire trip. Sit down interviews to document the compelling stories of these veterans of that fateful day complement their return journey. This film is an important record of history and worth sharing for posterity.
The museum is located at 745 N. Gene Autry Trail, Palm Springs. The Palm Springs Air Museum is an educational non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve, educate and honor our veterans.
