Letter to the editor: Commemorating Pearl Harbor sacrifices

Posted: Wednesday, Dec 5th, 2012

The governor of the great state of Wyoming, Matthew H. Mead, has proclaimed that Friday, Dec. 7, 2012, be remembered as Pearl Harbor Rememberance Day.

It is earnestly recommended by the few remaining veterans in Wyoming of that attack on Sunday, Dec. 7, 1941, that we all honor the more than 2,000 heroes that fell that day at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and the more than 1,000 wounded.

It is also requested by those same surviving veterans that all school teachers in this area bring to the children’s attention what happened at Pearl Harbor and that it was the beginning of America joining World War II.

For more information about the attack on Pearl Harbor, contact Mel Heckman at (307) 672-0613.
