Two from county lost at Pearl Harbor

— As America pauses today to remember the 70th anniversary of the “Day Of Infamy”, a local man wants to make sure Hunt County remembers the name of who may have been the first county resident killed during World War II.

William Caldwell of Greenville said James Albert Horner was killed in the attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941.

“That’s my wife’s brother,” Caldwell said.

The distinction, however, depends on how you look at things. Another Hunt County native also died at Pearl Harbor, in a valiant act of heroism.
