VFW to commemorate Pearl Harbor Day
PEARL HARBOR DAY
It began when Japanese aircraft appeared in the air over Pearl
Harbor, Hawaii just before 8:00 a.m. on Sunday morning, December 7th,
1941. When the attack ceased shortly before 10:00 a.m., less than two
hours after it began, American forces had paid a fearful price.
Eighteen (18) ships were either damaged or sunk, 180 aircraft were
destroyed and 2,403 were dead and thousands of others wounded.
In honor and remembrance of those who served and died at Pearl Harbor,
Shelby County Memorial Veterans of Foreign Wars, Post 8904 and the
Auxiliary will hold a remembrance program at Veterans Memorial, 1885
Historic Courthouse at 10:00 a m, Friday, December 6th, 2019.
As always, the public is cordially invited to attend. More
information contact Post Quartermaster Larry Hume, 598-2976.
