St. Paul Event Marks 75th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor Attack
ST. PAUL -- The Pearl Harbor Survivors Association, Fort Snelling National Cemetery Memorial Rifle Squad, and the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs are hosting a special 75th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor Ceremony in St. Paul Wednesday morning. The event begins at 10:00 a.m. at the Minnesota History Center.
The event is to acknowledge December 7, 1941 as "a date which will live in infamy." It's also to honor those who gave their life that day and remember those few remaining who live to tell their story.
Pearl Harbor survivor Richard Thill will be the honorary guest and Governor Mark Dayton will read a proclamation and offer remarks. Thill was a shipman on the USS Ward.
The program will be live-streamed online. If you'd like to watch, click here.
