Nebraskans Remember Attack on Pearl Harbor
Across the nation Tuesday, ceremonies were held to mark the 63rd anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Here in Lincoln, veterans gathered in Memorial Garden to pay tribute to their fallen comrades.
For the several dozen World War II veterans who spent the afternoon in Memorial Garden, Pearl Harbor Day is about remembering those who were lost, and what all of them were fighting for. They're older now, and their numbers are dwindling as the years pass. Even so, the turnout at this year's remembrance ceremony was the largest in recent memory. They prayed, and visited with old friends, and read the names of the 50 Nebraskans killed in the attack listed on the Pearl Harbor memorial.
