Vern Haugland, United Press Correspondent in Describing Air Attack Said, “One Destroyer is officially credited with bringing down nineteen Japanese planes” (now revised to twenty-three) “…another Destroyer claimed fifteen kills. Both scores are records for ships anti aircraft fire. Only a few bombs and planes hit targets, inflicting some damage and casualties but failing to sink a single ship. The Japanese raided persistently from 1 A.M. to 9:30 A.M. with biggest and strongest attack coming after daylight. Shore guns shot down a few that got over the island, but air patrols accounts for the greatest number. Attacks were the hottest where the two Destroyers brought down their amazing total.
