Al Patten is a retired Navy Chief and Pearl Harbor survivor. He and his brothers were on the battleship USS Nevada during the attack on Pearl Harbor. They were transferred to the aircraft carrier USS Lexington which was sunk in the Battle of the Coral Sea.

He finished WWII on the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise. He and his seven brothers served throughout the war on various ships and in many engagements and came through the war without a scratch. Moving to Alaska in 1962, he climbed Mt. McKinley (20,320, the tallest mountain on the North American continent) in 1969 at age 51.
