Local Veterans to Hold Pearl Harbor Ceremony


Listen to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt

That date was 75 years ago today. The Japanese attack in the Hawaiian Islands at Pearl Harbor resulted in 2403 Americans dead, 1178 wounded, and 18 ships were either sunk or run aground. There will be a flag raising ceremony today at the Grass Valley Veterans Building to remember that attack, but Frank Stanovich with American Legion Post 130 says unfortunately, even though this is a milestone anniversary, he doesn’t see more people getting involved this year…

The ceremony figures to be a brief one, it will be at 10am at the Grass Valley Vets Building on South Auburn Street.
