Joe Langdell, who died earlier this month at the age of 100 years, three months and 24 days, was the last surviving officer on the USS Arizona. He was off the ship when it was attacked. He remembered looking out his window to see Japanese planes, and, days later, being told to go out to the Arizona and supervise the recovery of all his shipmates bodies above the waterline.

Took two days to do it, said Langdell, choking up in an interview with the Appeal Democrat in Marysville, Calif.
