Ensign 12 June 1941. Ensign Haverfield reported to the battleship Arizona at Pearl Harbor 28 June, and remained there. During the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor 07 December 1941,
Ensign James Haverfield was one of 46 officers and 1,057 men of Arizona lost when the valiant ship was sunk by the enemy.
