USS Arizona Survivor

Lauren Bruner is a Navy Veteran and USS Arizona survivor. At age 21, Bruner was onboard the Battleship Arizona during the attack on Pearl Harbor, Dec. 7th, 1941. The Purple Heart recipient is one of a handful of USS Arizona survivors who are still alive to tell the story of that day. We sit down with Mr. Bruner during a recent visit to Tucson as the University of Arizona honors World War II veterans, marking the 75th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

  9. His story was one of the ones depicted in the Pearl Harbor scene in the movie Midway.

  10. Why not make sure that you are truly saved by Jesus Christ and practice this way. Remorsefully confess with your heart your sins to Jesus Christ who is God and tell Him that you right now are repenting of your sins and you want to be born again of the Spirit from above. Tell Jesus that you are remorsefully sorry for breaking His commandments and that you are begging for forgiveness from Him. Allow His blood from the cross to wash away your sins. After this is done with your heart successfully the Holy Spirit will come to live within you and He will rebuild you from the inside out.

    Look for signs that you are saved. Things like spreading the good news from Jesus, getting other people saved, a craving for the word of God, reading the Bible, etc… These things are known as a calling and fruit bearing. If you're not bearing fruit then keep doing it. Sometimes it takes time to get saved. Read Matthew chapter 13 from the King James Bible. God bless!!!!

    He saw so much. He survived and continued to serve. What an amazing thing that he never broke or became cold inside. He came out of it all with his heart and compassion still intact. What a beautiful man.

  22. Rob McCarthy says:

    You don't find too many Heroes that survived. I think a lot of the testimony from people that were at battles, were hiding in the background – kind of like the story about how big the fish was that they caught, it gets exaggerated every time they tell the story
