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 the Senior Nutrition Center on Loop 500
in Center at 11:00 a m, Thursday, December 7th, 2017.
As always, the public is cordially invited to attend and stay for lunch at
11:30 a.m. More information contact Post Quartermaster Larry Hume,
