  • Lawmakers honor Pennsylvania Pearl Harbor survivors

The event was orchestrated by the Chicago Park District and the Chicago Navy Memorial Foundation.

"You have Veterans Day, you have Memorial Day, and Pearl Harbor because Pearl Harbor was the beginning of World War II, it was the beginning of the Greatest Generation that established America's dominance and strength worldwide", Rep. Shine added.

On Thursday, a remembrance ceremony was held at Riehle Plaza in Lafayette.

On the early morning of December 7, 1941, Japanese planes attacked the Pearl Harbor base in Hawaii, claiming the lives of over 2,400 Americans.

Many cities across the nation are holding ceremonies to remember those who died.

Ganitch later broke out into song, delivering a rendition of "Remember Pearl Harbor".

"(The planes) came so close and so low that I took out one plane myself and one crash landed and exploded just across the street from me", read Newman.

"This is what it's all about", said Wetzel, a South Milwaukee resident.

"It was a turning point in American history and in the service of our country", said emcee Curtis Slininger, a Navy retiree.

As an example of this humanitarianism, Jindirch cited that if combatants against the USA military turn their backs to US soldiers and run away, our country's rules of engagement forbid soldiers from firing on them.

In all, the attack claimed 3,581 American casualties, consisting of 2,403 killed and 1,178 wounded, as well as 19 US ships and 328 USA aircraft damaged or destroyed, according to the National WWII Museum. "They weren't ready for it". "We could've ended up in the hands of the Japanese or Germany". He was waiting, we understand, for appointment to the Military Academy, but that didn't happen, so he made a decision to go Navy.

"We are a very, very humanitarian country, whether it's in war or in peace", he said. "That's why our folks volunteer to join our military, so we can continue having freedom".

The saying is "remember Pearl Harbor" but for these area Veterans, how could they ever forget it changed their lives. The former Bradford High School student spearheaded the memorial project with the help of Navy Club Ship 40 members Tom Fredericksen and Paul Shockley.

For the second time, Congress reciprocated, declaring war on the European powers.
