Veterans here to remember Pearl Harbor

KINGMAN - At dawn on this day 67 years ago, Japanese forces attacked the United States' military forces at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii.

The home of the U.S. Pacific Fleet was one of many military targets on Dec. 7, 1941.

Today, veterans' organizations will be remembering "a date which will live in infamy," as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt described it.

The American Legion Golden Valley Post 22 will hold a flag-raising ceremony at 10 a.m. at their site, 3435 N. Verde Road, in Golden Valley.

For more information, call (928) 565-4545.

The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3516 will be holding several activities beginning at noon at their building, 2826 Wikieup Ave., in Kingman.

The VFW Post 3516 will hold an American flag-retirement ceremony.

Members of the public can bring their American flags, which are in a condition no longer a fitting emblem for display, according to the U.S. Flag Code.

The VFW Post 3516 will also be collecting new, unused diapers as part of a drive for the less fortunate.

Following all the ceremonies, the VFW Post 3516 will hold a potluck for veterans.
